Resource Center Dallas reopens cyber center with 8 computers

Resource Center Dallas has reopened its cyber center with eight new computers.

The David Bohnett Foundation provided the center for new computers, according to RCD spokesman Rafael McDonnell. Updated software was also included in the grant.

Bohnett, who is gay, founded GeoCities in the 1990s and sold it to Yahoo in 1999.

The cyber center was part of the Phil Johnson Library. Those archives have been moved to University of North Texas as part of the GLBT Archives.

McDonnell said 60 community centers around the country have cyber centers funded by Bohnett. In Texas, he has funded centers in Houston and Austin as well.

The center is open to the public. People using the computers do not have to be registered RCD clients. But McDonnell asked people using the computers limit their time to one hour.
