"Celebrating Linux and U.S. Independence, the GeekCast.Com Network announced Tuesday that its Penguinista DSL Project is stretching across five states, and snaking through 59 metro-area markets. Jeff Gerhardt, GeekCast.Com Networks' CEO, said that celebrating Open Source freedom and the birth of a nation go flipper in flipper."

"Linux-friendly Internet service is just the tip of the iceberg as far as Gerhardt's community efforts are concerned. Gerhardt also leads the Benevolent Penguin Society (BPS), coordinating efforts among business concerns, Linux advocacy and improving educational opportunities for kids. "The BPS was originally created in partnership with Pinnacle Internet, an Illinois ISP," said Gerhardt. "The main function of the organization is [to be] an administrative vehicle by which the developers, GeekCast and Pinnacle, can do 'good works' for the Linux Community and the greater community at large."

"According to Gerhardt, the successful service deployments are good for business and for Linux enthusiasts. "The BPS was created for the purpose of raising funding for good works for or on the behalf of the greater Linux community. Two low-income urban schools are already connected to the Internet because of BPS."
