Nice to see this initiative! Good idea to put some effort in these blogs!

Well there are many on the mailinglists (BNL & NL). But right now I know
of about 6 people (including us three) in NL that are working on stuff.

That's right. Not sure if we should add a "team" page. IMHO we are just
getting started in NL. As soon as we have some more stuff to say (for
instance about the EDU campaign, the crypto-parties and some other
stuff) it might be time to start a team page. If it gives you more
"weight" in your dealings with politicians, than let me know/

Right now the only place we are "using" is the fellowship wiki ->

Its open to all fellows and if anybody else would like to help please
join in! We can cross-link/post blogs there for instance.

Please keep in mind that in IMHO we only need one place for now... let's
focus effort (especially on irl activities like the crypto-parties and
NL-EDU campaign). This makes sure we have stuff to write about and
prevents multiple places to maintain, as this is much work already.

Also for the BNL the wiki is the place to go right now. At FOSDEM I'll
discuss with Mauricio what we can do in this regard.

Kind regards,
