Hi all,

I am a big fan of open source and education so I got a domain openedtech.dev (home page under construction). The concept is that we create and aggregate educational content that is either available for commercial use with attribution, or belongs to the public domain. This is to lower the barriers in EdTech and make EdTech about services, not intellectual property.

Here is a sample of the kind of content I am trying to produce: https://www.openedtech.dev/whytypescript. I built the embedded code editor bootstrapping off of Microsoft's open source monaco editor.

I googled openedtech and found this site. Hope the similar naming is no problem, it was not intentional!

I'm all for that. What do you plan to do to differentiate this from other projects that develop open content?

I'm personally going to spend hundreds (likely thousands) of hours donating content to the public domain. 

Other projects are all CC attribution, I think public domain is best for content. Code licensed under GPL.

Other projects are often not on GitHub, the place where technology actually happens. Our posts are written in markdown (mdx) so editing them isn't too bad. The embedded editor can also copy its configuration to the clipboard to help users modify existing editors within the source code. 

If you look at the example blog post you will see that our method for running code in the browser is a really nice experience. We are first developing a competency in java/typescript education to attract the kind of crowd that can actually make edtech products within our technology stack. 

I care a lot about my project but time will tell if it actually has any legs of its own.

It is pretty cool. And I also agree that nothing beats the public domain: https://medium.com/creative-commons-we-like-to-share/not-even-attribution-486bd87deb82
