"Tom King, Secretary for the project agreed. "This
model seems to be working well. We are beginning to talk with East
and South Austin Community Centers about their needs and they are
substantial" said King. He hopes that this concept will catch on
and become effective not only in his community but others around
the state and country.
"Various educational software, basic Internet programs and
OpenOffice Suite are all placed on the machines for the students to
have access to. Although the equipment will benefit the family of
the students as a whole the computer actually belongs to the
students. Parents are encouraged to supervise computer usage and be
involved while not monopolizing the system. Computers are
guaranteed to be pornography, virus and advertising-free when given
to the students."
