It took me a while to grasp it...this "global community" thing. Silly me.
The HeliOS Project, some would argue, is a local effort fueled by a handful of people who want to make a difference. Their ability to do what they do may noteworthy but after all, it's still local.
Is that what you think?
See, just one of our efforts, a 25 computer learning center in East Austin was put together by local people who volunteer for the HeliOS Project. And trust me, the people that worked that day to make this center happen busted their asses...in near 100 degree heat and carrying 90 pound CRT's over 100 feet to get them set up. But we got it done.
