[K12OSN] K12Linux heads for Texas...



Hello Folks,

Well, tomorrow morning at 5:50 am (just a few hours and 20 more K12LTSP
CD sets away...) I'll be off for the NECC conference in Texas.
www.neccsite.org

This is the largest education/technology conference in the USA. There
will be 10,000+ teachers there. Thanks to the generosity of Red Hat and
Linuxfund.org, K12LTSP will be there too.

I'm taking our Linux Toaster
http://www.riverdale.k12.or.us/linux/toaster/

We're hoping it will get by airport security with no problems. ;-)

The toaster is really a K12LTSP terminal server. I'll also have a NIC
from thinknic.com and a Windows 2000 terminal server running on my
laptop. Once it's all plugged in, we'll be able to show how well all
this software works during a 2 hour session on Tuesday. I've also
scheduled several meetings with various people interested in Linux in
Schools. This is the best place to talk with folks from all over the
country. One goal we have in addition to showing teachers what Linux can
do for their schools is to demonstrate it to hardware vendors.

We'll also give away a hundred CD-Rom sets of K12LTSP. I wish that
number had another couple of digits in it but we do what we can...

I've worked up a set of slides that I'll post to the web site later this
week so others can use them.

Thanks again to Red Hat and Linuxfund.org for helping with this trip.
With school budgets so tight here in Oregon, there is no way I could
have gone without their support.

;-) Paul
