Always on the lookout for applicable information, I found a link on http://boingboing.net/ about 'altruistic' routers:
I just came across http://boingboing.net/ and Cory Doctorow for the
first time today. I had been reading more of Clay Shirky's stuff,

Cory when Clay mentioned him.
I was finally convinced of the use for personal blogs. This really is
what I need - a place for me to put my thoughts and provide a scratch

I proceeded to search google for blog software, download
movebletype, and set it up. What a dream; it's even easier to get
running than *Nuke sites.
Oh, one more note: I really liked Cory's title "Outreach Coordinator" at http://www.eff.org/ - it describes what I see myself doing in the future as well.
