|SUBJECT ||Subject: [hangout] New NYLXS Classroom Space, and Full Time Internet Cafe?
As you know, we've been negotiating and looking to work with Kings Games for permanent space and classroom space.
I'm sitting over there now. They are moving downstairs and they are moving into two floors, the street level and the basement.
They built the basement largely to our Specifications :). It is completely wired with cat five, ad they are offering to
allow us to move about 6 new Free Software boxes down there. It will be, if we decide to do this, not only a great
Free Software internet Cafe on one of the busiest locations in NYC, but in addition, it can become a permanent teaching
location for NYLXS. Alex, the owner, is just waiting for us to do whatever we want. The machines would be rented
for $5 an hour to the public, and perhaps we can make a deal for NYLXS members. The space is freshly built and
BRAND FREAKEN NEW.
If the FSCC can get the paperwork done to make ourselves a legal school, we can teach there during the daytime, and even get
NYS Department of Labor Funding for students (is that cool or what). It might be an idea to possible talk to IBM about Webshpere training
etc. There are LOTS of possibilities.
One donw thing, though, is that they are moving from the Megapath 16 Mbs SDSL to something with cable. I don't know what that
will affect yet. But this is very close to ideal for us with our budget.
