OSU Open Source Education Lab announced!

osel_logo Oregon State University has created an Open Source Education Lab to help get students involved in free and open source software. The lab will provide a place for students to learn about open source, how they can benefit from it and contribute back to it. Initially the lab will be staffed by 2 former OSL employees, Brandon Philips and Alex Polvi. You can find them during the school year at Dearborne 401 (the site of the Linux Users Group "Penguin Nest"). The OSL will be working with the OSEL to help these students have the resources they need to spread the word, as well as help them make connections within the open source development community. To find out more about the OSEL, read their announcement pdf here or visit their new OSEL web site (appropriately, a wiki).
