My university seems to be continuing is slide into MS control. Can't really have a local server to host things anymore. Can't really even have my own web pages hosted by the university.

Pretty much all of the tech knowledge is being outsourced to big tech companies.

Really makes me appreciate the stuff I see at places like OERu. Which I think is largely maintained by @lightweight

@drb that's very kind, Devin! We'd love to have your University join the OERu network! :) - You should mention if you have allies in the administration, feel free to point them at oerfoundation.org/become-an-oe you'd be in good company: oeru.org/oeru-partners

@lightweight
I did see that on the website. The uni's financial situation might not be in a place to do much of anything at the moment but I'll keep an eye on it.

@drb @lightweight
Devin - If you're interested in exploring options, the OER Foundation would be happy to arrange an informal, non-committal web call to see how we can extend the benefits of OER in your part of the world.

@mackiwg @lightweight I'd be happy to chat some time, just please don't overestimate my influence on my campus. I do have a course that I developed a few years ago that I think would be a good fit for this model.
