Vermont YouTube of the Day

The rarin' librarian strikes again! Watch Jessamyn West install open-source operating system Ubuntu on two library computers in rural Washington, Vermont. Take that, Microsoft! She blogs about the experience on librarian.net.

While Vermont's policy-makers talk about making this the first e-state, Jessamyn actually spends time in libraries and classrooms helping rural Vermonters understand how to integrate this new technology into their lives.

Jessamyn talks the talk and walks the walk. And we're very lucky to have her here.

UPDATE: Hey look, I submitted this to Boing Boing, and they linked to it. Cool.

Hi Cathy,

Jessamyn's friend Liza here, just by coincidence. I wanted to make sure you saw this post on LesbianFamily.org, which I think you will find interesting: http://lesbianfamily.org/2007/05/08/known-donor-bonuses/

Hey thanks! I also have to thank the VT International Film Festival for inspiring me to figure out how to make little movies. Every year I go see all the excellent local films and think "man I'd love to do something like that" so this year I was determined to actually figure out how to do it.

Congrats on getting BoingBoinged. Hope it doesn't slam the 7D servers too much.
