Necessity may be the mother of invention, but budget crisis will always be the mother of innovation (e.g. how did my mother manage to feed six kids on one pound of hamburger?). I created a brief presentation on open source software for our faculty here at Tacoma Community College. It is not the most complete picture - it is a toe in the water for an institution that is pretty deeply entrenched in corporate solutions. I will expand this later with audio, so if there are horrifically glaring omissions or links that should be included, feel free to leave a comment here.
