Both Openlessons.org and Openlessons.com are taken, the latter being a
site with resources for learning about FLOSS programs, but not really
for educators.

I've made a link on the K12OpenSource.com site for "Lesson Plans" that
goes to the wiki http://openlessons.wikispaces.com and that could
serve as a good place for this.  I posted Daniels initial email there.
 If someone wants to outline the categories for the lesson plans, we
can be on our way.  We can also promote this at NECC big time.
