A few months ago, Michael and I were brainstorming ideas on how we can aggregate our different interests into something that could benefit our community. Michael was interested in recycling our used computers. I was interested in helping out kids in our neighborhood. We both wanted to increase awareness about Ubuntu.
We settled on the idea of converting unused computers to Ubuntu desktops we could install at Cleveland Elementary school. Since its inception, we have installed seven desktops, and have 12 more being updated in my garage. We have also helped start a computer club on campus, which we attend once a month to instruct students. So far, the kids are loving it. It’s amazing how easily they gravitate toward the Ubuntu operating system, and how much they enjoy learning computers after school. I believe we have some future Linux Systems Administrators in the making.
