And the last Olin Etherpad FAD thing (for now). Doing some initial "research" on student interest on the FAD.
I don't expect much from these results, but I would like to get some student buy-in (seems to work better if people respond, they some how accepted).

And if my psychology doesn't work out, at least they get exposed to the FAD another time. People tend to get less angry about survey + invitation    than     invitation + invitation + invitation.

Next step is to work on advertisements. Olin doesn't need them until 2 weeks prior (we can't plan, love spontaneity). But the community needs them now! Got enough propellor-heads I feel comfortable going public.

You've used it, loved it, wished it was still improving?

(If you haven't, check out a video demo and try it!)

We're organizing an Etherpad Hackathon to take a significant whack at the project. Sound interesting? Tell us how we can make this even 100% awesome:
