Please present your ID with security, and go to the badge table to check in.

Note 1: Because this event is not our regularly scheduled monthly
meeting (we are having two presentations in March), it will not be
held in our normal Chelsea Market venue, but rather in Google's main
offices. As such, IDs will be required, and you will either need to
register with your real name, or answer the RSVP question.

Note 2: RSVP will close at 7:30pm on March 18th, a full 48 hours
before the event. We have to do this as we will be requiring people to
wear badges, and register with security. We also need the time to
prepare the list of names for security. (Please consider using your
real name as your meetup name to lower the workload of the organizers.)

Note 3: RSVP will open March 6, 2013 Wednesday 4:00pm.

Debian, 20 years and counting

Debian is one of the eldest Free and Open Source Software
(FOSS)distribution in existence. The project has been founded in 1993
tofurther Free Software distribution and is still doing so in an
purelycommunity-driv­en way. The Debian Project and distribution are
bothmade by volunteers who employ a dual "do-ocratic" (a form
ofmeritocracy based on the outcome of individual work) and
democraticmodel to make decisions and drive Debian toward its goals.
Theuniqueness of Debian is manifest in its Free Software
values,independence from commercial interests, and in its importance
as thebasis of a huge ecosystem of several hundreds derived
FOSSdistributions, which includes today's most popular ones.

In this talk we will present the Debian Project and distribution,
discuss its unique traits, as well explain how to join the Project and
contribute to it.
