I updated the wiki page with information on the March 1st meeting. The
location is GRCC 214 ATC and time 4-6pm.
I gave a presentation to our faculty on how the Open Source movement
gave inspiration to other fields like art or education. Linux success
and especially the glx elements which are easy for users to notice, is
a proof that global collaboration does work.
You can take a look at the invitation to the session.
http://www.grcc.edu/IntroToSession I could share this information
with GRLUG at some point.

I went to change the info on the wiki, but I can't find a way to
create an account.
