"From the confines of a Colombian church in a community he
declines to name, Jaime Herazo attempts to bring a full-color world
to schoolchildren on a black-and-white screen."
"Describing himself as a "sort-of-systems-administrator" to 262
students, Herazo, a 24-year-old systems engineering student,
believes that a solid education that includes a strong computer
background can help give a better future to the students of his
troubled country. Linux was the natural choice for implementing
a computer program for a small school in an economically depressed
region. Herazo's work continues despite a lack of enthusiasm
from the school...."
"While Linux's Open Source structure and price tag made the
decision on the school's operating system (OS) a no-brainer,
turning the tide of computer unfamiliarity can be difficult for
Herazo. "I'm mostly building infrastructure right now, and trying
hard to teach the teacher," Herazo explained. Despite this, he has
big plans for the school's computer facilities. "This week...is a
festival....so the school won't have classes, and I`ll upgrade the
computers to Mandrake 7.0."
