Re: GNU/Linux Consulting, St. Paul, MN

Pursuant to my “Free MN Initiative” , I want to collect a list
of GNU/Linux professionals who could be available for consulting
opportunities in St. Paul, Minnesota. Please forward this
invitation to your GNU/Linux friends.

This request is an unpaid, volunteer initiative of mine. I
neither make nor imply any warranty. I do not represent Minnesota
State Government in this matter.

My intent is to identify people available for consulting. If you
are a State of MN employee, please say so. That will probably mean
that you are interested in being available on an inter-agency loan,
rather than as a paid consultant through the Prime Contractors. If
you are available on a volunteer basis to assist with projects,
please say so.

The Prime Contractors sometimes pay finders fees. I am
designating that all my finders fees be paid as a 501(c)(3) charity
donation to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place –
Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111, USA.

additional information. It will also be disclosed to the Prime

send me a second email with your full resume and I will place it at
my web-site, provided you affix a GPL or LGPL copyright notice (see

Full Resume: http://www.freedomain.org/u/lls/resume.html

I have spent 40 hours installing and using Debian GNU/Linux. I
know how to spell SMTP, HTML and GCC. I know the “G” in GNU is
spoken (guh-new). I am well known for not having created any free
software. I have spent over 2,000 hours trying to understand free
software licensing, advocating for the application of free software
to government, and advocating for universal secure email within the
mn.us hierarchy. I am interested in volunteer team assignments and
in paid assignments.

“Free MN Initiative”
This recommends that the MN State Legislature cease funding the
usage and creation of non-free software. I will request this ban
immediately for server operating system software. I will wait for
GNOME before recommending the same for the desktop. This article
has been delivered to 200 senior managers within State Government
and to the Information Policy Council (IPC) . I will request
legislative hearings in Spring, 1999.

“Minnesota State, Public Email Policy”
I want the State to install a GNU/Linux email backbone within
government. Then I want them to extend a secure mn.us email
backbone to all citizens of the state.

“The Application of Free Software to Teams in Government”
I want the State to experiment with the application of free
software to its internal business. Then I want them to create many
public input email addresses and listserv discussion groups
throughout state government.

“Local Community Digital Network (LCDN): Features and
I want the State to assist the local communities.
