Re: [Clojadelphia] (fwd) Wednesday, March 5, 2013: PLUG Central - "The Clojure Programming Language: Don't Fear the Parens" by Paul L. Snyder (7pm at USP, Griffith Hall)

I've spent *way* too much time getting syntax highlighting working for
org-mode's beamer export (most of the org docs are for the <8.0 exporter),
and I'm still working on polishing the preso content. 

So, I don't have time to sort out the tech details, and this instance of
the talk won't be recorded. But...I've just been asked to give repeats at
both suburban PLUG chapters.  I'll try to rig something up so at least one
of those instances will be made available for online viewing.

That's probably better, anyway...this run-through will let me get the kinks
worked out of the talk.
