Columbus OneWebDay - Tues 9/22

Click here for more info and to register -

OneWebDay is September 22. OneWebDay provides an opportunity for communities to celebrate the power of Web for positive change. This year, OneWebDay focuses on the importance of access to fast, affordable, open Internet for all people, otherwise known as digital inclusion. OneWebDay activities are taking place all over the world.

For OneWebDay Columbus we have planned a mix of activities around both learning and giving. Focused on the idea of digital inclusion, we've recruited volunteers to teach workshops and accept technology donations. Workshops include: Intro to Ubuntu (an open source operating system), Free/low cost online applications for small businesses and Legalities of open source software.

OneWebDay Columbus is very much a community effort. Its completely supported by volunteers and small business donations. EdgeCase is covering the cost of food. FreeGeek is providing the space. ShinyDoor is coordinating the day. Assist Data Recovery will be cleaning all donated hard drives. Possitivity Green will be recycling all donated equipment that cannot be refubished. All the workshops will be taught by volunteers.
