for our latin american audience
« on: January 02, 2008, 08:14:44 am »

It so happens that I have dollars left over from the Christmas holiday and, since my latest erratic mood swing has put me in a very charitable mood, I thought about causes I'd like to advance. Our family are already involved in the public media­­, so I wanted to do something else. I think it's good that people are taking up free software (software libre) in Latin America because it might give a good kick in the pants to some nascent tertiary industries there. The husband to one of my good friends actually worked for Air Products in Brazil for a while as a programmer. That's a very good sign. The only effective way for poor nations to join the 'first world' is to develop industries besides mineral extraction and tropical crops. Let's keep it rolling.

So, in short, I'm looking for some kind of project I could donate to for that end. Google appeared not to turn up anything...
