Not sure if all of you are aware, but this list has served as the
inspiration for regular meetups at Noisebridge for a few years. I've just
added a Linux section <https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Linux> to their
website/mediawiki and hope you will feel inspired to add to it yourselves
as anyone is welcome to get involved. There are currently multiple classes
that meet on a regular basis: General Discussion, System Administration, C
and the Assembler. We're now looking to offer two new, bi-monthly classes:
a 101 Linux Introductory class for those with no experience whatsoever on a
bi-monthly basis and a class that focuses solely on system recovery. The
recovery class will have the fun name Fie: Failure is Eminent. It'll be a
chance for people to implement various methods for backing up and
recovering there data, which we will put to the test and improve. Both
will be for 1.5 hours at an unknown time though you can get an idea by
visiting the events <https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Category:Events> page.
