        I joined originally when asked to be on the steering committee of another effort, Teachers Letters to Obama

        I have also found Facebook to be very useful in staying in touch with former students

            but frankly, the quickest way to get something up and get people involved is Facebook.  That is demonstrated by the fact the group now has over 6200 members, or people joining at a rate of better than 1,000/day.
