At the very least, I saw do the website, and see if you can poke the LUGs
(or other ORGs/NPOs in that area) to see if they have the time/energy to
actually gather the hardware and do it.

We could have instructions, downloadable files, and everything set up

Slashdot.org's pretty popular.  :^)  It's worthwhile, geeky and Linuxy,

Smaller sites to hit include DesktopLinux.com, OSDir.com, Linux Weekly News,
and probably some other non-Linux sites that I'm not familiar with.

Good luck!!!
