Having tried to read many of the introductions realised that for a group with this number of participants (> 2000) the number of posts (220 at the moment) to read is just too many. An idea would be to ask participants to restrict their posts to just two short sentences. Also google groups lists in the oldest first rather than newest which is the opposite to things like twitter.

Trying to decide whether to blog here or on http://wikieducator.org/User:Mverhaart/My_2011_eduMOOC_blog . Will see which works out best.
