Based on Tony's presentations and what I'm hearing from Nepal I suggest we
should recruit combination Content Writing and Content Curator/Librarian.
There is a lot of free content for various grade levels, languages etc,
content created by different deployments.  Someone who learns whats
available in different content areas and thinks about how to use it with
sugar activities and Moodle/XS and communicates that out to deployments is
at least as valuable as writing new content.
