"The Benevolent Penguin Society ISP has announced dial-up service availability to an estimated 1,000 U.S. communities, and international service deployment in Canada and Japan. But to children and the Linux community, the deployment means a whole lot more."
"The BPS was originally created in partnership with Pinnacle Internet, an Illinois ISP," said BPS spokesperson Jeff Gerhardt. "The main function of the organization is as an administrative vehicle by which the developers, GeekCast and Pinnacle, can do `good works' for the Linux Community and the greater community at large."
"Gerhardt, also GeekCast's CEO, said that bringing the Linux community philosophy to the ISP arena was a unique idea. "It was the first ISP in the world focusing on the Linux community and fund-raising for good works projects in the Linux community," he said."
