A point of clarification- I think we are talking about 2 different concepts here.
The network equipment side of the website which serves the webpages and holds the data is hosted on Panix. As far as software/programs/solutions for the brains of the site(s), they will all be built on or around Free and Open Source platforms. Except for Gmail and this Google Group, everything so far is being built with FLO. We are pushing very strongly to adhere to FLO. As for loudfeed, I don't know if we have had a commitment from Mr. Ron whether or not it will remain a free service for us or if it will adhere to FLO, or if it will turn into a fee service.

For to-dos, project tracking (not code oriented), document collaboration, calendaring, with user/group roles OpenAtrium could serve us well, as those seem to be the most immediate needs of our group and the other workgroups.

Understood. There could be a couple different options for the
public-facing site to and while it's a hosted solution, you fully control
the content/data/URL/look&feel/etc.

Is there a way I could set up a brief demo downtown (I'm based in NY)
tomorrow or Friday?

Thanks!
