So cashaw all I was suggesting was that a single page on the Wiki lists a few guidelines for people who go ahead and create their own YouTube tutorials etc., not that the foundation should employ people to create a bunch of official tutorials. My reply saying about the Foundation employing more people by increasing the Model B price was purely to help streamline and really focus all the community efforts, not replace them.
No, I never suggested that the Foundation employs people to write official Wiki's and the like, but to have a link to a single consistent source of useful information, which can be community managed but to a foundation format giving a consistent source. My example of the webpage above which is hosted and managed by the small company making the product, but all submissions are made by the community. Just a sort of moderated wiki, not a full time job.
It was really just a way to have to stop having to Google for Raspberry Pi tutorials from different sources which may or may not be out of date, correct etc. Nothing stopping others writing their own things of course, but some place we could know that information is current and (semi) official.
(and I did wander off topic a bit by wondering if the foundation had plans to create suggested curriculums for school courses etc when the Pi does finally reach schools, i.e. is the foundation also supplying the educational eco-system or just funding for cheaper hardware for schools)
