I'm very much inspired by the work that's been done out in Athens by Free IT Athens. They provide free/low-cost IT services to low-income families and community organizations in the city of Athens, GA. In their words:
Free IT Athens is a group of like-minded citizens who realize that computers are a necessary component of everyday life. We believe that everyone deserves access to low-cost computer equipment and computer-related services. Our goal is to provide access to information technology resources to Athens-Clarke County residents and organizations. We also aim to create well informed advocates in free software and open information technology.
I'm interested in helping/starting a similar organization here in the Atlanta area. I know there are a lot of deserving individuals and community organizations, and it provides a great opportunity to showcase the strengths of open source software. Unfortunately, there is no way I can get this off the ground myself. I'm looking for some more individuals who might be interested in a meeting (either in-person or via IRC/dim dim/etc.) to discuss the feasibility and planning for such a group. This (hopefully) serves as my "feeler" for others who might be interested in participating in/organizing such a group.
