Dell Donates to Fight Cancer

OK, this is only marginally Linux related, but I can’t help myself. Dell has recently announced that they will be donating funding, employee time, and cloud technology to help in the fight against Pediatric Cancer.

This is a great cause Dell. You deserve kudos for your efforts. Also, your choice of institutions couldn’t be better. The Translational Genomics Research Institute is an amazing organization.  I say that without a hint of bias, except for the fact that Mrs. Linux Rants there! She is ecstatic about this opportunity, even though Pediatrics isn’t her department. Information that’s uncovered by this research will benefit all cancer research.

Thank you Dell.
