We're wrapping up day 1 of the POSSE classes and it was a pretty busy day of jumping in and out of IRC to create eight accounts for all the necessary services we will be using throughout the week.
Today was a basic primer about blogs, wikis, mailing lists, IRC, and the reliance on text based communication in collaboration communities. We set up a wiki page for another participant using only IRC to communicate. We also created or linked out existing blog to the Teaching Open Source Planet feed aggregate.
Now that the "open" day is out of the way, we are going to be diving into the "source" day tomorrow and getting our hands dirty.
