Hi everyone,

We decided to do something different at SLUG this month (and hopefully
in subsequent months). Details are below.

In short, we are expanding to fill our new venue by running BoFs* in
parallel. We're looking for people to run BoFs based on whatever topic
they like (provided it's FOSS-related).

Please contact the SLUG Activities list (activities at slug.org.au) or
the SLUG Committee (committee at slug.org.au) if you'd like to run one.

Now that I have your attention...

With our resettlement to Google complete, we feel that we can start to
take better advantage of our new facilities. SLUG has long been a
leader of the FOSS community in Sydney. With increased awareness and
normalisation of FOSS in recent years, we have seen many other groups
sprout. This this is a good thing, but we can do even better with some
co-operation and cross-pollination.

With this in mind, we are thinking of running BoFs* alongside the main
SLUG meeting this month. A community member will be required to
co-ordinate each BoF. If you think you can run one, please let us know
the topic of the BoF you want to run, and we'll see if we can
accommodate. It would also be nice if we could get an approximation of
how many people would would expect at your BoF, so that we can
allocate enough space.

If you want to see a BoF on something, mention it on the
activities at slug.org.au list and see if any one else is interested.

BoFs are intended to be informal, so we don't expect presentations or
other prepared material (although we can accommodate if you wish to do

The details of the next SLUG meeting are at http://slug.org.au/node/119

If you are going to the meeting, please sign-up online using the link
in that announcement. That will allow us to organise adequate catering
and facilities. If you aren't sure, please sign up as a 'maybe'.
