Done. (Or rather, started.)

I would welcome suggestions for additional resources.  For example,
does Conestoga College still offer Linux courses? Who is doing Linux
consulting?  Who is involved in a FLOSS project? Suggestions can come
to me, preferably off-list. 

I put on the resources that I could remember off the top of my head.
If you are on and want to be removed or have some information changed
let me know off-list. 

If you want to vehemently disagree with this then let me know, preferably
off-list. If worst comes to worst I will demote this from being an
"official" page to being a blog post on my KWLUG blog. 

I am hoping that doing this is not going to spark another 50 e-mails
on the list about whether this is a good idea. We have already had three
unsubscriptions from kwlug-disc and I bet a bunch of other people are
on the cusp. 

I know that usernames are not clickable by people who are not signed
in. We can deal with that headache later.
