Zero Dollar Laptop

Very exciting times as I’m building a WordPress MultiSite, and meeting up with various and interesting in people, in places as far flung as The London and Kent.

One of the projects I came across today was Furtherfield’s Zero Dollar Laptop Project, and I just had to share the idea as I think it’s so brilliant: Organisations donate old laptops. Install Linux and Free Software on them. Advertise the course as “Free laptop, but only if you complete the 12 week course”.

I think it’s brilliant because Free Software, you can’t give it away. But if you offer hardware, this appeals to people’s Greed Complex, stimulating a small area in the cerebral cortex (the same part of the brain that results in the feeding frenzy).

Spread the word! Let the feeding frenzy commence!
