Re: [school-discuss] Request for New Intro-Duct-Shuns.
Hello, I'm Cameron Miller, a long time lurker. I work as a lowly
sysadmin for Adams State College in Colorado. I started using GNU/Linux
in 1992, and have made minor contributions to projects like Devil Linux,
Thinstation, and Bricolage. I authored the nuts and bolts our portal
system, (replacing a proprietary monster), and more recently our web
session manager, ASCA: http://freshmeat.net/projects/asca/
I'm working to get our college to adopt Free and Open Source, things are
finally starting to move, as higher ed budgets remain tight. We now
have Linux thin clients in our library, with talk of adopting them
elsewhere, and some small student labs in science and business are
finally running Linux, with Windows stations using OpenOffice alongside
the competition. Moodle is making inroads against WebCT. Our college
is a long time teachers college, with a rural educational mission.
