Technology For All staff and volunteers will be meeting on the East (Fannin) side of the Astrodome at 3 p.m today, September 2, 2005 for the initial installation of 40 computers. Some will be utilized in the Astrodome press boxes by relief workers for administrative purposes and some will placed for public access. This is our initial installation and we believe we have plenty of volunteers for today. However, we will need many more volunteers in the days ahead. We are grateful to SBC (www.sbc.com
) for the installation of DSL lines and SimDesk (www.simdesk.com
) for productivity software on the computers. CompuCycle (www.compucycle.net
) prepared the computers for installation and will be delivering them at 3 p.m. We will need additional volunteers in the immediate future. Prospective volunteers can indicate their interest in an email to Pam.Gardner@techforall.org
or by calling 713.454.6400. Computers received as donations today and after are being prepared for additional installations in the dome and in other locations.
