A collection of soaps and room keys that has since more than doubled.  Don't' worry, it's okay to take the plastic keys if you ask.

  Since July of 1999 I have worked as a Public Access Computing Trainer with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  During this time I have been fortunate enough to visit hundreds of Public Libraries all across the United States installing donated computer networks, providing lots of and lots of training for Librarians and promoting technology in Public Libraries at open houses.  The Library Program division of the Gates Foundation seeks to help bridge the "Digital Divide" through technology and training seed grants to qualifying Public Libraries.  Since almost all Libraries qualify for these grants, I've been all over.  Seriously.

     Flying (this page was even constructed 35,000 feet in the air on my laptop!) and driving all over the country I have seen some wonderful things and met some beautiful people.  These links take you to pages detailing some of my memories and reminiscences from these trips.  And if the states seem out of order, they really aren't.  They are listed in the order I visited with this job starting with Washington back in 1999 and finishing with Illinois in 2002.  That's a lot of states!  Wait till you see what's inside.  Oh, it's just so exciting!
