White House, industry seek to close digital divide
- Sure would be nice if there could be open source representation at such
if you want to really close the "gap" let folks use and learn about free
In fact I would like to start an on going open educational forum with
classes once a week covering computers, networking, OSS, Linux etc..
Start from the
beginning, developing the course work, lectures etc... Then let folks
build their own systems, load Linux for example, get them on the
Internet (Lafn.org is good
for that). Then most importantly teach folks how to get about in this
technology laden world.
We might be able to use the Civic center in Manhattan Beach to do this.
easily accommodate 200 folks.
If anyone is interested please contact me. I think Wed or Thur nights
would be the best for such presentations. If we split up the
presentations then we could
cover lots of ground.
