Ok - I've put you in a project leader for the moment, but you can feel free to change this as more people come on board ;-)

>>> I heard about this group a couple of days ago from Andrew Cooper and decided to hop aboard. I'm passionate about improving the education standards for Web workers worldwide, and the proposals outlined for this group closely match what I'd been wishing the W3C would get involved in, so hopefully I'll be able to contribute something useful to this community! I'm a self-taught, freelance Web Designer. I already write for a number of industry sites, have authored some books on Web design, and have participated in a couple of other projects (alongside starting a few of my own which are being built as we speak).

"Learning material" is the only one currently that has activities put under it. If you want to work on one of those activities, please let me know.

>> Later on this week I will list more activities on the Wiki, and start gently persuading (bullying) people to get to work on them
