new faces

Last week's interesting presentation on screen brought in several new people. We also had several new people show up at last month's west side meeting.

It's up to us to make PLUG interesting enough for them to come back.

Thanks to Colin for his presentation. Thanks also to Dierk and Joe for their impromptu mini-presentations.

Phoenix Asterisk User Group

James over at Rhino Equipment mentioned that he was planning on starting a local Asterisk user group. He's setup a web site saying that it'll kick off in September.

September is also the Phoenix AstriCon.

Amanda from Rhino Equipment has been out to help at the InstallFest.

NASA talk for PLUG

Noel Gorelick of the Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State University will be discussing ASU's participation in the robotic exploration of the planet Mars, and how linux plays a part in that work.

Noel did a great job with his last presentation for PLUG. Lots of really cool pictures of Mars and stories behind what was going on. He was also a great presenter as well as having really, really cool materials. This might be the last chance to catch the talk as Noel is leaving the Mars Space Flight Facility at ASU to work for Google.

About the Free Software Stammtisch

The Free Software Stammtisch is a social environment for GNU, Linux, *BSD and Free Software enthusiasts. We start arriving at 19:00 and hang out until at least 22:00, with several of us often there until closing time.

The Stammtisch in the east valley now meets in Mesa. There is also a Free Software Stammtisch in Prescott.

Southwest Valley?

Recently attendance to PLUG meetings has been growing. We're back up to 30 to 40 people at the east side meeting. Having a lot of good presentations has helped there. Not only have we been getting good Free Software presentations ( including JJ's great, spontaneous presentation about his homemade wireless router ), but we've been getting some excellent presentations that aren't directly about Free Software.

We had two presentations on NASA projects ( thanks Noel and Mike! ), plus an excellent presentation on resume writing ( thanks Don! ). Mike even talked with us afterwards about his experiences on the MythBusters.

first PLUG awards

We have a Town Hall meeting tonight in IRC and I'm planning on giving out the first PLUG award by posting an image here.

Scan of award certificate for Integrum thanking them for supporting PLUG.

sed intro

Ran into a cool introduction for sed.

PLUG shirts setup

I think I finally got the PLUG shirts right. Using SpreadShirt to handle all the store stuff.

Both men's and women's shirts available.

Linux etc.

Doing a presentation for PLUG west side Tue night.

Calling it "Linux etc." and covering things I think people should know. Ideally we'll have audience participation. In fact, I probably should learn something almost every time I give the presentation.

The presentation should really be mostly just standard *NIX stuff, but I'm not going to worry about compatibility this time around.

Hopefully the presentation will be a strange mix of trivial pursuit, game show and treasure hunt.
