Topic: "Won't you be my neighbor?"
Speaker: Beth Lynn Eicher

A preview and expansion of her introductory remarks to be delivered
at the Ohio LinuxFest, Beth Lynn's presentation will cover how
Linux and Free Software are like a neighborhood.  Like a physical
neighborhood, individuals have both common interests and diverging
goals and ideals.  What part can you play in your neighborhood?

The public is welcome, and no RSVP is necessary.  The home page for
this meeting can be found on the WPLUG wiki at
