Freedom Toaster

Wow, this is a great project that I need to add to my list of worthy causes, FreedomToaster.org

Billions of people live with restrictive telecommunications environments that make it difficult and costly to access digital products such as free software and educational content. The Freedom Toaster project was started in 2004 by the Shuttleworth Foundation as a way to overcome these problems.

Freedom Toasters are conveniently located, self-contained, computer-based, 'Bring 'n Burn' facilities. Like vending machines, preloaded to dispense confectionery, Freedom Toasters are preloaded to dispense free digital products (e.g. Linux Operating Systems and the OpenOffice.org office suite Toaster Software).
