[p2pu-webcraft] Is Cold Fusion Relevant for School of Webcraft?

This is a great discussion everyone. Thanks for weighing in with your views!

There's two excellent threads going on here

   - the openness of the Cold Fusion technology (not open enough for SOW)
   - and what are relevant technology skills we should be encouraging within
   School of Webcraft.

The Cold Fusion course (and all other topics that School of Webcraft can't
support eg. Flash groups) will still run within P2PU - because that's where
anyone can learn about anything they want.

Besides School of Webcraft filtering out the unsuitable topics we should
also be acting to encourage the good, open alternatives - it's great to hear
that PHP, Django and RoR (all of which have run within SoW) are the
technologies you believe we should continue to support.

BTW - it's been really quiet on the list - please remember that everyone
(not just me) is able to start up a conversation :-) I'd love to hear your
voices more frequently!
