WPLUG will hold a general user meeting on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at the Wilkins School Community Center in Swissvale, PA. You don't need to be a member of WPLUG to come to our meetings, and there is no cost to attend.

After our "business meeting," which typically doesn't take more than half an hour, we'll open the floor to presentations, discussions, and generally just hanging out. If you're interested in having fun with other Linux and open source enthusiasts in the area, we invite you to stop by!

Presentation: Gittip

  • Presenter: Chad Whitacre

Gittip is a way to give small weekly cash gifts to people you love and are inspired by.

Gifts are weekly. The intention is for people to depend on money received through Gittip in order to pay their bills, and bills are recurring.

Gifts come with no strings attached. You don't know exactly where your gifts come from, and the maximum gift from one person to another is $100 per week.

Gifts are public. The total amount you give and the total amount you receive is public. Participants on both sides of the equation are rewarded publicly for their participation. (You can opt out of publicly displaying your total giving.)

Give by answering Who inspires you? on the Gittip homepage, and following the steps.
