Linux Against Poverty 2010 is a go...

Linux

Lynn Bender of geekaustin.com has announced that he is beginning preparations for Linux Against Poverty 2010. I was pleasantly surprised to find that 25 people volunteered for the event within an hour of the announcement.

That is roughly half of the geek/tech workforce we were graciously provided during the last event. Lynn has some fairly spectacular options open to him for this years event but until they are locked down, I've been asked not to be too specific. The event is scheduled for the 10th of May this year. If you wish to participate in LAP this go-around, please leave your comments here or email me helios at fixedbylinux dott Komm. We'll get you slotted into a place where you feel you can do the most good.

There is also a google group for installers and hardware folks if you are interested in joining.
