Calling all women in open source software!
With the permission of Canonical, we have teamed up with a nonprofit, Partimus, to bring you these Ubuntu themed earrings. The amazing volunteers at Partimus build and maintain computer labs running free open source software in low income schools. Their efforts have provided computer education (increasingly important in today's job market) to many school children who would not have had it otherwise.
With the purchase of Ubuntu Earrings, you support Partimus: $6 per pair will go directly to their operating costs, helping them to expand into more schools. It's not often that buying jewelry and doing good in the world intersect!
The earrings are gold or rhodium plated and measure ~3/4". (Rhodium is a non-tarnishing silver colored precious metal.) They are slightly domed for depth and are hung on gold-filled or surgical steel hooks.
My daughter has always shunned logo-bearing clothing, and consumerism in general, but I have noticed that she is willing to wear or carry stuff with subtle tech logos. The Ubuntu earrings were PERFECT. To anyone who is not tech-savvy, it is merely an interesting design. For insiders, she is making a statement of her support for an open source operating system. She seemed to be truly delighted by her gift. Thanks!
When hunting for a gift for a computer science major, look no further than Boutique Academia. My daughter loves her Ubuntu Earrings. For those in the know, they are an authentic nod to Linux's most popular distribution. But even the technologically illiterate will love their stylish design and sparkle. Next time, I'm going to buy a set of DNA earrings for myself....
