Hi Pippa,

Creating a separate thread ...

I will be happy to help with the computer science learning community within
P2PU. However, I guess I will have to balance the time I give to P2PU and to

A little background:
I have been thinking of an online community for CS from a long time. I
created a prototype a few years back, but it fell off, because I could not
dedicate enough time to it, from my other activities. I again created
something a few months back, but could not give a whole lot of time to it.
Sometime back I decided to stop all my regular revenue generating work, and
work full time on diycomputerscience.com

Because of this I will soon need to start generating some revenue from it.
Since all my content is free and open, I do not charge people for access,
however I do have some thoughts on some potential ways of generating
revenues... value added services, careers page, etc. But it's a whole lot of
experimenting and figuring out what works.

Because of all this I am a bit caught up in trying to bootstrap
diycomputersciene. But I will be glad to help out in the broader CS courses
at P2PU wherever I can.

Thanks & Regards
Parag Shah
