Portland, OR - Expand the concept of Free Geek to operationalize like Portland Tool Libraries

Although Portland has, from what I've heard, the highest broadband utilization per capita of the top 50 cities in the US, the poor neighborhoods are still poor neighborhoods. Tool Libraries such as NEPTL and NPTL offer a model to distribute and share the tool of the internet and communications. I'd love to see BTOP grants going to grassroots, neighborhood organizations such as these in markets with 4G penetration, which crosses the broadband redlining in many cities.
