This month PLUG welcomes Elizabeth Krumbach, who is back in town

Pittsburgh, on a trip to Ghana in western Africa to assist with
the deployment of 100 Edubuntu-based desktop computers. In this
talk she will share photos and details of the trip, along with
some of the lessons they learned about doing such a deployment in
a developing country.

San Francisco. She is a member of the Ubuntu Community Council,
serves as the marketing and website lead for the Xubuntu project
and is on the Board of Directors for, a non-profit
