Website name for the education and curriculum committee

I, Puneet Kishor, proposed ecogs.osgeo.org education curriculum open geo spatial (ecogs).

Ari Jolma suggested university.osgeo.org. I like Ari's suggestion better than my own. It has the advantage of being unambiguous, but, in Ari's words, might be a bit bold. My one lingering concern is that the academia might see our attempt at education as a parallel, competing, non-vetted effort.

Tyler Mitchell proposes keeping it short and sweet but meaningful and memorable: edu.osgeo.org

I, Puneet Kishor, (along with most others on the committee -- five on last count) second Tyler's wonderfully simple suggestion. Unless anyone has a particular objection, edu.osgeo.org shall it be.

Unni Krishnan feels that the name edu could be confused with Internet's generic top-level domain .edu for educational institutions. Since you want to arrive at a Website name for the "education and curriculum committee", why not make it just ecc.osgeo.org or eacc.osgeo.org?
