[John, I'm 'CC'ing the education group at SEUL on this. SEUL-EDU is a mega
gnu/linux education-projects group, and maybe some members of the list
live near the DC/Virginia area.]

If anyone intends to swing by the City Wide gnu/linux open house, 
(as described by John Knight, below), and wants to carpool, or needs a
ride from Alexandria VA, let me know.

[John, You can probably find some great resources for super-charging your
project if you search through the content on SEUL-EDU's
website: http://www.seul.org/edu/ . They are a phenomenally organized
gang. SEUL-EDU makes it a point to archive as many pioneering gnu/linux
projects integrating free software with education, as possible.]

Free the software; Free their minds
