I'm sorry for having taken so long with this, but my computer was down.
(lame excuse, I know) I had it already prepared at our last meeting.
(never leave for tomorrow...)
Here's a write-up for the brochure on the Free Software Institute. I
hope no one minds, but I pretty much modified what was already on the
A few points, please look it over and feel free to send back comments on
it. Specifically, I need corrections, if any, to the curriculum. Do
you feel the section on inservices says enough and is accurate? Is
there anything you feel should be added to the beginning? Some Pizazz?
Anyway, thanks, and sorry for the wait. Anybody know what the deadline
on getting these things printed is?
Also, I need info on booth manning (people-ing?) :) What's the URL on
the schedule finally? How many people have signed up for which time
