Lindependence in the starting blocks
No, that’s not a typo. I meant “Lindependence,” as in Linux and independence run together to make what Lewis Carroll used to call a “portmanteau” (read “Jabberwocky” for a great selection of portmanteaus).
Lindependence, short for Lindependence 2008, is the project we have going here in Felton where we’d ideally like the people of the town to throw off their digital chains. More detail can be found here in this interview with nuxified.org.
Read the interview. Meanwhile, people in the area are talking, the groundswell is starting to rise. It’s going to be an interesting few months in the San Lorenzo Valley.
