"Chris Calise announced the launch of the Lane Community College
(Eugene, Oregon) Open Source Educational Group:
"We have grown to 47 members and we hope to recruit more when we
launch our LTSP demo with an event enhanced with great door prizes
generously contributed by Redhat and Active State. We have also
been involved in our community, helping to set up an LTSP network
in a local middle school, and working to set up a OS computer lab
at a local HS.
"Our goal is to recruit other educational institutions to form a
network of Open Source education advocates in the hopes of building
a national presence on all college campuses. Please pass this on to

power in networking!
"Our site is is geared to providing educators and other students
with links, resources, and information about the benefits of Open
