CUSTOMISING DEBIANS

This could consist of building a custom livecd or simply using or installing Debian-NP/Morphix. We might be able to set up something specific for NP organizations. There are a few ideas on the wiki (wiki.debian.net/index.cgi??DebianNonProfit) that could be used or extended for use with the livecd.

...this opens up a talk about

CUSTOM DEBIANS AS A FOCAL POINT FOR COOPERATION AND CREATIVITY

The core of the talk is showing how Custom Debians does tricks with externalities.When you work on a custom debian, you improve free software,and thus generate positive externalities. These externalities won't get lost, however, because a custom Debian is a Debian; so Debian collects all these externalities from all the Custom Debians.All these collected externalities, will then undergo creative networking effects inside Debian, bringing advances that the Custom Debians alone would not have done .And since a Custom Debian is 100% Debian,improvements in Debian are also improvements in the Custom Debian. This means that Debian-NP acts like a point of entry for cooperation and creativity which talks very much to to the Non Profit world.
