Πυρπόληση της Αθήνας (Burning of Athens) – A Response

By , February 18, 2012 10:34 AM

We would appreciate if you refrain from posting political/partisan content or lobbying for political causes. There are many other things we can do for promoting Hellenism and helping our country in these difficult times such as these examples:

  • Promote tourism,
  • Campaign for Greece’s name and image through public relations initiatives,
  • Research and compile solid proposals for economic growth in specific subjects (agriculture, renewable energy etc.)
  • Promote our natural resources of beauty and antiquities for international movie making opportunities to Studios
  • See examples of efforts for recasting Greece at a better light
  • …. and the list could go on and on.

    HECs resources should not be used for such activities as advocating toppling government officials, directly or indirectly. These subjects of political/partisan nature are not part of our purpose or scope and in addition jeopardize our standing as a non-profit 501(c)(3) USA organization. Therefore, HEC is not in position to support the effort suggested in the email (forum post) under the subject “Πυρπόληση της Αθήνας”. If anyone would like to proceed they can do so outside of the Forum and HEC.

    For those who like to know more about us visit our website.

    5,578 Hellenic Professors and PhDs.
    My question is:
    Don’t you think that 5,578 bright minds could discuss something else of substance and be more productive?

    Visit your blog and spend 5 mins of your time to read this:
    http://www.greece.org/blogs/scholars/?page_id=1061
    Click the “Users” button to see your colleagues.
    Register yourself if you have not done so.
    Edit your profile information and add a short bio about yourself.
    Take a look at the projects.
    Participate in Blue Skies.
    Offer some ideas.
    Let’s work to do something productive.

    We can do better than discussing politics all the time and blaming our culture and politicians for the condition of our beloved country.

    Thank you,

    Thanos Voudouris
    HEC Director

    Request for Volunteers

    By , January 27, 2010 12:03 AM

    Our new server is up and running, the blog application has been set-up and the initial blog named “scholars” has been created.

    However this is not enough. It requires people to organize the blog, create a taxonomy as to how all the subjects will be handled, and will require several moderators monitoring the blog around the clock.
    Simply we cannot “go live” without the required planning.

    Back in September I had posted the email below explaining what is happening and requesting some help. (See the 1st comment below)

    However, I have no volunteers for any of the required tasks. So, please read again the email below, and if you want to volunteer, send me a private email thanos.v@greece.org

    The following steps will lead us to activating the blog:

    1) Receive emails from volunteers
    2) Establish a “Scholars Blog Team”
    3) Solicit comments and suggestions based on the initial/current blog set-up
    4) Identify, schedule and assign tasks based on each person’s expertise
    5) Compose the Blog charter and guidelines for registration process and use
    6) Draft appropriate text for some of the initial pages
    7) Test
    8) Go Live

    We are all volunteers and some of us spent countless hours to keep HEC running. It will be great if we migrate this forum from email to a blog, but will not happen if we do not create a team to set-up and manage the blog during operation.

    The ball is on your court. 5,000 top educated people will read this message and I hope I will get reasonable responses.

    Thank you.
