Linux Australia Announces Podcast Donation

Linux Australia today announced a donation of $1500.00 to James and Karin
Purser of Dapto, Australia to assist with the production of their podcasts
- the Linux Australia Update and the LUG Roundup.

"We set up the Linux Australia Update and the LUG Roundup in response to
discussion being held at the time on the future of Linux Australia. One of
the issues was a percieved lack of communication between various sections
of the Free and Open Source Software community. So we decided to put
together our two programs and see who would be interested in listening,"
said James Purser, producer/presenter of the Linux Australia Update.

"Both Karin and I have learnt a hell of a lot over the last seven or eight
months, both in terms of how to produce a fortnightly program but also
about the community we are trying to connect with. The response has been
fantastic, we've had over 8000 downloads over the last seven months and it
keeps growing." he said.

"We've been looking at upgrading some of the equipment we use to create
the podcasts. This donation allows us to create better quality episodes as
well as allowing us to explore new ideas," said Karin Purser, wife of
James Purser and producer/presenter of the LUG Roundup podcast.

"James and Karin have been working hard to help promote our community and
this is our way of helping them do that," said Linux Australia President
Jon Oxer.

Both the Linux Australia Update and the LUG Roundup podcasts are released
on a fortnightly basis with the next episodes due on the 21st January. The
