Thumbs up Massive Ubuntu Installfest for Schools... We need your help! (March 1st)

Untangle and the ACCRC are organizing an installfest to donate hundreds of open source computers to Bay Area schools on recycled hardware. We're calling on the free and open source software community to help underprivileged children get access to computers and save our landfills from toxic e-waste by installing Ubuntu at one of the four locations: Berkeley, San Francisco, San Mateo & Marin County

Why its Cool:
  • Helps spread F/OSS (Ubuntu, Firefox, OpenOffice & more)
  • Helps bridges the Digital Divide with underprivileged users
  • Keeps toxic computer equipment out of landfills
  • Is a cool community effort

How You Can Help:
  1. Signup and join the installfest!
  2. Help get the word out by blogging about it ,Digg-ing it or Slashdot-ing it
  3. Donate an old computer at one of the 4 locations: Berkeley, San Francisco, San Mateo & Marin County

This sounds really awesome as I live in the Bay Area in Berkeley. Unfortunately I will be gone on a vacation to Japan for 2-weeks at the end of February and beginning of March. Otherwise I would have been happy to contribute my time and experience to this project. Let us know of any other future dates
