Cool BALUG Dinner: Alameda County Computer Resource Center (Nov 20th)

The Bay Area Linux Users Group (BALUG) is hosting a great talk on November 20th by James Burgett, the founder of the Alameda County Computer Resource Center (ACCRC). James will discuss how the ACCRC uses GNU/Linux to distribute refurbished computers to schools, non-profits and low income families. In doing so the ACCRC is both helping bridge the "digital divide" and keeping some of the harshest chemicals out of landfills by reusing computer equipment.

Four Seas Restaurant
731 Grant Avenue
San Francisco, CA

COST: The event is free. However, dinner is $13 for those that want to eat.

About ACCRC:
The Alameda County Computer Resource Center (ACCRC) is an electronics recycling & redistribution center. The ACCRC recycles unwanted electronics and computer equipment from the public without charging any recycling fees. The computer hardware is then refurbished, installed with GNU/Linux operating systems and distributed to schools, non-profit organizations and economically and/or physically disadvantaged individuals.

About BALUG:
BALUG is lively gathering of Linux users & free software enthusiasts that combines great food, community & intimate access to featured speakers. We meet in the bar of the Four Seas Restaurant from 6:30pm. At 7pm, we share a family-style Chinese dinner, which is followed by our guest speaker.
