I don't know Jackson from a bar of soap, but from what I'm reading he 
seems like the sort of bloke who is going to 'pay it forward' numerous 

Further, it may well be argued that younger people are precisely the 
folks LA should consider financially supporting at the lower end of the 
'market' as they will 'show FLOSS off' around schools and also typically 
have low paying jobs (if any) until at least 18 if not 21 as well as 
some having edumacational fees to meet, etc.

Dunno if Jackson is *that* young, but those are my feels.
