Here's a list of resources being consulted by Matsu District (AK) c/o
one of the leading activists in the region.

Note that Oregon Curriculum Network is included as one of these
resources, plus Anna has made two special trips for planning meetings,
got on the Wanderers boat, participated in a management workshop.

I mentioned TECC in my Chicago talk last year, as an example of an
elite charter thinking to use FOSS.

Another example is LEP High, a Portland Public School standardized on Edubuntu.

Riverdale High has pioneered LTSP on Redhat and so on.

Like I said, Portland is FOSS capital.  Boston can't hold a candle,
though we work together with MIT on promoting the XO.
