James Burgett, Alameda County Computer Resource Center (ACCRC):
“Free Software, The Environment, Social Welfare, and the Digital Divide”
James will recount the path ACCRC has taken as it’s grown in the last five years to reclaim and reuse computers, peripherals, and other electronic devices people donate. In general, ACCRC gives computers to individuals and worthy organizations without charge or strings. ACCRC uses Linux on the systems it gives away and has developed quite a bit of expertise in installing various Linux distros on various (old) hardware.
