The technology industry has been really good to me.  The least I can do is lend a hand to the next generation.

Please join me and cast a vote for Miguel and UrbanTxT...


And while you're at it, send a tweet about @UrbanTxT too.

Time is running out.  Do it now!

Part of that is bringing a hackerspace to a traditionally under-served area. More than that, we envision it as a community center built around technology- machines running Linux, training kids & teens how to program & exposing people of ALL ages to open source software, etc. But we need YOUR help to do it! We've made a submission to the LA2050 contest where we could win 1 of 10 grants worth $100,000 to make this vision a reality.
