Forgive my late entry into this thread.  Since I live and breath Linux 
and FOSS all week, I try not to read email on weekends.

First off, Greg's suggestion that someone should have College level 
teaching experience would block me, and puts others like me out of the 
running before POSSE picks up steam.

Although I've been helping RIT learn FOSS development Techniques for the 
past year and providing a case study/Pilot for TOS if we go with a 
strict interpretation of the teaching requirement, I don't even make it 
to the short list.

Second, this should be taken as a devils advocate point of view.  As a 
business owner, Mother of two etc, time distance and funds are always 
considerations for me.  It's not that easy for me to make a commitment 
with so many irons in the fire.
