CNN is running a contest to see who the most popular hero of our day.
Number one currently is a guy who is working to prevent the extinction
of gorillas, certainly a laudable goal.  But number two is a guy who
has given away more than 16,000 Ubuntu boxes to schools, non-profits,
and poor people here in the San Francisco Bay Area.  He has given 30
boxes and switches and cable to our local public middle school.

Now we have a chance to support him by voting in a CNN contest to
determine who is the most favorite hero.  Saving Gorillas is awesome,
but IMHO, giving away 16k GNU Linux boxes to people who really need
them is even better.  Please consider digging this story below, and
then voting for James on the CNN site.  Thanks either way!



BTW, I do not work for either James or for CNN.

Thanks either way for considering my request!
