Exciting map@syst project

I have been asked by eXtension map@syst to help pilot a project. I have a feeling the project is going to become something like a Ning group, but on the eXtension platform. I think this will be VERY nice, so youth in geospatial can ask the professionals when they need help, and also help each other out. They just asked me last night to do this, so I don’t know much more then that, not even what it looks like! I will be posting more as I know it here. I KNOW there will be some issue with confirming that the people who sign up are ACTUALLY youth. We had this issue when I was working to help plan out, the now dying, ACCESS 4-H. Although I LOVE how Iowa 4-H has done their Ning group, where they fwd requests to area personal, who can contact the counties to confirm membership.
