Update top level markup to include mode bar mode context bar filter bar Probably excluding ‘how to add a post’ since this feature doesn't exist yet. Make any other general look and feel changes...

POSSE - Foss2Serve

POSSE began as an outreach effort by Red Hat, Inc. to the higher education community. The goal was to help instructors learn about free and open source software (FOSS) so that they could incorporate FOSS into their courses. A description of the first POSSE workshops is contained here

[Janet Davis, Ushahidi] Sorry for the ungrammatical utterance - I copied and pasted Pat's introduction from Skype and forgot to edit.
