hi folks.  i'm an edtech educator at a public library in the DC-area.  our library has 28 public linux stations. i help youth and adults use these computers. i also blog for MAKE magazine and opensource.com  
 
i love showing the public open source solutions as part of my job and outside of my job. i pride myself on not being an open source fanatic. i'm more of an open source nutcase.  there's an important difference. soft sell is always more effective than hard sell.  
 
i usually don't spend too much time on google plus, but carla schroder invited me to this community and i support whatever she supports.

You can do all kinds of cool things using Linux, including multistation computing -- where several people share the use of a single computer. Today I blogged about multistation computing using Fedora 17, which is freely distributable software.

The property manager was friendly, knowledgeable and passed along some great advice regarding what would work best for my storage needs. I appreciate it when a business looks out for my well-being in this way. We need to return to the days when businesses treated your as a person, not just a customer.
