Our free community edition of SurveyCTO

Hi ODKers,

This week we announced a free community edition of SurveyCTO. Coupled with
our earlier release of an online form designer, we hope that this will
further expand the range of users who can take advantage of our -- and
ODK's -- technology to collect better data. You can learn more here:

In part because we can't afford to run thousands of unused servers and in
part because we want to build a rich and engaged community of users, we're
taking the unusual step of requiring some minimal monthly "engagement" from
users who want us to keep running their servers for free. There are a range
of options that users have for engaging with us
http://www.surveycto.com/community-contract.html, but two key options are:

  1. help somebody in the SurveyCTO peer-support forum, and
  2. help somebody in the ODK community forum.

As the number of community users engaging monthly grows, we want to find a
growing list of ways that they can help enrich the greater community --
including the ODK community. If any of you have ideas for other "engagement
options" we can add, please let me know.

Thanks,

Chris

P.S. We're also still interested in feedback on our form designer -- so
please let me know if you have any feedback for us!
