This new community is starting to take off. www.opensourceohio.net
Thought you might want to know about it.
The goal of this initiative is to connect graduates, students and displaced workers with small to medium size software development projects within local companies and non-profits.
I also have the community manager for SourceForge involved as well.
You can read her blog on Open Source Ohio here: http://sourceforge.net/blog/open-source-ohio-bringing-foss-and-business-together/
We have already completed 2 projects and have about 9 total.
The Dayton Business Journal did a story on the community that hit the front page last month.
I am getting a lot of very good support from many organizations.
Please let me know if anyone in your group is interested in getting involved.
