“Co-operative Breathes New Life into Old Machines with Debian”

We’re in the news for the 21st April 2008 and the actual piece in question highlighted by Ben reads:

Co-operative Breathes New Life into Old Machines with Debian

Bristol Wireless is a co-operative set up to develop a free-to-access broadband intranet using radio, with the emphasis on supplying ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) that are relevant, permanent and affordable to communities that find themselves on the wrong side of the digital divide. The group is working together with Voscur and Byteback Computing to provide access to computers built on Debian to the people of Bristol. Byteback provide the wiped machines to Bristol Wireless; we install Debian Linux on them and use the machines in our grant-funded projects in deprived inner city areas.
