Hi FreedomBoxers, I need your help.  In an effort to get my hands on a
real DreamPlug and domain name sooner than I'd be able to otherwise (and
to gauge and create interest), I've applied for a micro-grant through a
new micro-granting organization in my area [0].  Everybody who attends
the event puts $10 into the grant pot, and every attendee gets a vote
where the grant money goes.  With a $200 grant, I could purchase a
domain name and a DreamPlug about 3 - 4 months sooner than I'd otherwise
be able to.

What I need from you guys is to review my grant presentation before I
present it at September 18th, 6 PM (EST).  The presentation is available
in an encrypted archive [1], with password:


Now, I'm trying to refine the final message and presentation.  I'd
appreciate feedback on:

- - Is the message useful and encouraging?  How could it be improved?

- - Is it accessible to non-Linux gurus?  Where is it technobabble?

- - Is it technically correct?  Why or why not?

- - Is what I plan to do with the grant money obvious?

Thanks for your time,
