Zero Dollar Laptop workshops Update.
Working with Homeless, Reusing donated Laptops and upgrading them with
The first day of working with St Mungo's Homeless, clients & residents
was a success. After our call asking people to send their old laptops to
us so that we can work with homeless people for the Zero Dollar Laptop
project, we received many computers (laptops), and they are still
arriving. We even received one from Greece.
The class was over subscribed. 12 individuals was the limit "Twenty
people got together in a busy room (18 participants and 2 tutors Jake
Harris and Olga Panades Massanet) and went through the first big step."
Week 1. Breaking Windows. Installing Linux.
Preparing for ZDLT workshops
Wishing you all well.
The Zero Dollar Laptop Project aims to change the way we all think about
The Zero Dollar Laptop is a recycled computer, running Free Open Source
Software (FOSS) that is fast and effective- now and long into the future.
Artistic Team: Jake Harries and James Wallbank
