Hi Everyone,

The 3rd Meeting of the WikiEducator Council is adjourned.

It's been a lively meeting with a full agenda. On behalf of the WikiEducator family, I would like to extend our sincere thanks for your gift of knowledge and time. Together we achieve more than working alone.

WE are pioneers in the evolution of open governance models with a healthy dose of radical transparency. Our meetings demonstrate a level of transparency, which to the best of my knowledge, have not been implemented elsewhere. It takes courage to cast votes openly in a wiki environment for our community to observe while the meeting is in progress combined with the fact that our votes, comments and interactions are recorded in perpetuity on the Internet. I express my personal thanks and gratitude for your committment in making OER futures happen.

In the near future, I'd like to conduct an informal and open debriefing of our meeting to figure out what works and where we can improve on our processes.

I include a summary of the meeting outcomes below.

Thanks again. I will see you in the wiki :-)
