I have been mentoring young folks who want to learn Web design and what I have discovered is that there are literally NO college level curricula in my area that would teach them Open Web technologies. Their options are either to learn Web technologies that are 4-5 years behind what's out now, or to take a degree in computer science. I would like to see this project succeed because I believe there is a great need for it. </li> <li> 21.
