LUGOD held a Linux demo booth at the Davis Farmer's Market yesterday.
We passed out "Linux & OSS in Education" flyers to all of the folks
running for School Board who also had booths, as well as spoke with folks
who want to start a charter school (at a location that the district was
planning to close, due to low enrollment). They want it to be a
'tech school' -- part of that is giving all students a laptop. We've
already begun a dialog with them regarding the use of OSS & Linux to
reduce their licensing costs (to pretty much nil :) ).
