The Freedom Toaster: another case of helping out

Recently I blogged about Bill and Melinda Gates and the good work they're doing through their foundation.

Today, thanks to a posting by Solveig Haugland, I discovered what Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Thawte, is doing through his Shuttleworth Foundation. Among other things, the Shuttleworth Foundation is placing Freedom Toasters in South Africa and other places. Bring your blank, writable CD or DVD (selected locations), select the free software you want, and toast it while you wait. It makes lots of free software and even free books available to people who might not otherwise have access to them. Thanks!
