Most of us are all familiar with the power of open source software although we see that many groups are behind in utilizing these resources. I would like to talk about what open source projects people are using as well as what the challenges and benefits have been. I ask the question, how can we better enable the community groups, nonprofits and businesses to increase their capacity? I will share my personal experiences with several projects including Druapl and migrating to Ubuntu Linix as my primary operating system. I invite others to come and share their experiences, advice and mistakes.

Please bring around $10 to chip in for drinks and pizza. We will figure out the order the pizza order once people get here. As always please RSVP so we can be sure our space will accommodate everyone.
