We'll definitely have an online backchannel. I'm trying to get a group
working on an etherpad + irc. Currently posted a thought @ wikibooks and
pointed to it from other book-writing communities (pls point your favorite
communities to it :)

We're pulling together a group of Boston area physics teachers, grad
students, researchers, and undergrads with TA experience to join us at
Boundless for a hackathon weekend. Essentially, it's a way to meet and
mingle with fellow physicists enthusiasts while creating a free, open
physics textbook for students and teachers to use soon. To create the
textbook the group will be pulling from free, openly-licensed educational
sources online (we'll explain the whole process during a fun orientation
night). Here's some more info about the hackathon:
I would love if you could share the event with your physics contacts!
A little background on Boundless <http://www.boundless.com>: The
company is based in Boston and has raised almost $10M in venture capital to
date. We're is aiming to make education more affordable and accessible for
students by curating the best open educational resources. We currently have
free, open textbook alternatives for eight subjects, and physics is one
we're planning to share with the community soon!
