Thanks in order - Networking positives
Its interesting to note that at the moment - a few of us are
networking and assisting between states. (in a physical sense)
NSW Computerbank are helping to assist Recruit.net, ERNI and
Computerbank Victoria in Melbourne to bring down a donation of
systems located in Sydney. They are also sending CBV some badly
needed hard drives.
Special thanks go to Ken Yap for helping to organise this in
FYI, Recruit.net is an organisation that has a "work for the
dole" community IT project. Participants gain skills in desktop
publishing, web design, hardware refurbishment and more recently
have been gaining skills in GNU/Linux.
ERNI = Equipment Recycle Network Incorporated, recycle both
computers and equipment for low income people with disabilities.
Recruit.net assist about 4 groups, including Computerbank
Victoria, with computer collection, storage and refurbishment. We
all just had a very positive meeting re establishing a computer
recycling association. If there is interest I can certainly post
the main points arising at the meeting to this list. ??
I guess, the point of this email, then, is to really highlight
the great benefits of networking with others. But I'm sure that
many of you are already aware of this. :)
It just feels kind of great to know that people in Sydney are
helping to get systems to Melbourne. We even managed to get the
transportation donated with a contact through ERNi.
Its just fantastic!!
