Linux Social Experiment – People have NO clue

‘The idea came to me while I was helping my daughter with her homework. There was no direct reason why I should have come up with the idea during that event. It was just a random thought on which I followed through. What if I were to stand on a street corner with a sign in MY hand? One in which did not ask for money, food, a job or sympathy, but offered to give people something for free? What if I offered people waiting at the stoplight of a busy intersection free Linux disks?

[..] It was shortly after the morning work rush hour that it began to happen.

People gave me money´┐Ż

And cigarettes´┐Ż

4 gave me gift certificates to local eateries.

Some gave me phone numbers.

Go figure.’
