colo resource for folks interested. I appreciate your patience and

Hello SFLUG people,

We are writing because SFLUG folks might be interested in a new
non-commercial, community network with a colocation facility in
downtown San Francisco.

If you operate a server for an open source project, a non-profit
organization or non-commercial personal use, you qualify to host your
server at the San Francisco Community Colocation Project's colo at 6th
& Brannan in downtown San Francisco.

Your share of the collectively-purchased space & bandwidth starts
around $45/1U/month.

We have helped run a non-profit colo facility in the Bay Area for 5
years -- and now we are opening the doors to our newest colo in SF. We
are part of a network that includes other community colos in Seattle,
Chicago, Toronto and Washington DC.

We are also committed to the protection of online free speech. In
2003, for example, we received a DMCA take-down order from Diebold
regarding documents that had been posted to our servers that shed an
embarrassing light on Diebold's eletronic voting machines. The
Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) took up the case and Diebold
backed down. A corporate colo probably would have forced the client to
comply with Diebold's lawyers.

If any of this sounds good to you, please get in touch!
