hi,<br><br>I just wanted to give you a quick report on today's installfest. We had a wonderful day today. 72 clients showed up throughout the day, according to what I overheard in a review after the fact. We installed GNU Linux distros on several clients machines, and in most cases, these were rank newbies who had never heard of Linux before today. Every client with whom I spoke or whose conversations I over heard seemed quite positive about Linux. We gave out the info sheets with the SF-LUG information on it. We also hand-modified the info sheet to let people know that they could contact St. Anthony's if they have additional information, pursuant to Karl Robillard's request (Karl works at St. Anthony's).
<br><br>This event was so well attended and so well run
that they are planning on doing another one in January. Also, I made
connections with people in San Francisco city government who are now
interested in taking more steps toward introducing FOSS into schools
and low-income housing. This was truly a wonderful day. A mini
digital tipping point happened today ! <br><br>Question: does this list permit photographs? I have received photographs from one of the members of our community, Charles Francis. I will be posting those pics to the Digital Tipping Point Picasaweb collection.
