Re: [seul-edu] Linux in Education presentation

     I've not attended any of your meetings at trilug yet, but one of our local
volunteers, Mark Biggers is or has been active in your LUG for quite a few
years. Since his relocation to the Western North Carolina mountains I've been
showing him what we are doing up here. I've been planning to attend one of your
meetings with him soon. I'll be glad to help you out anyway I can. I have
several contacts within the NC school system. There are systems in the state
and in your area already using linux but for some reason they are not very
vocal.  I have a rough presentation I presented at the NC technology
