    happening up until now, what's changed and changing, what the future
    holds, and how it impacts YOU.

  January 17, 2011
  7:00pm - 9:00pm


  "If Tux the Penguin offered you Kool-Aid, would you drink it?"
  Mark Terranova, GidgetKitchen.org

    "I already have, mmmm, the taste of Freedom."  We have a caring nature
    in free and open source software (FOSS) communities, and this in turn
    can create some funny similarities with cults.  Linux is like a cult,
    but a good cult. People should acknowledge that what we do is great
    AND unusual, and it would be great to get more folks to join us...

About the Speaker:

  Mark Terranove is spokesperson at GidgetKitchen, a non-profit
  organization forming in the San Francisco Bay Area that encourages
  the use of modern technology, recycling & re-used electronics.

Anniversary Celebration:

  This meeting also marks the Linux Users' Group of Davis's 12th anniversary.
  To celebrate, free food & drinks will be provided!

Both of these meetings will be held at:

  Explorit Nature Center
  3141 5th Street
