Featured Speaker:

The third Tuesday of the month is almost here, and that means
Chinese Food and Open Source. Join us when the mozilla.org team
(well Jamie Zawinski, plus whoever else decides to come…) tells
us about the status of the Mozilla project…

We’ll find out what’s been done… what remains to be done…
and if the project can be considered a success… (Plus maybe it
will be revealed what the AOL thing really means)

Jamie Z. was resposible for the Unix version of Mozilla.org
through version 1.1, and the Netscape News and Mail clients
versions 2.0 and 3.0, thereby proving the law of software
envelopment: “Every program attempts to expand until it can read
mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones
which can.” He is also largely responsible for xemacs,
xscreensaver, xdaliclock, and xkeycaps.


With enough parking karma you should be able to find street
parking in the area. Otherwise we recommend parking at the city
garage located at Kearny and Commercial- directly across from the
Chinatown Holiday Inn. Traffic into the city during rush hour has
been unusually heavy. If you are coming up from the south bay we
recommend 101 to Civic Center (stay on the right), bear left off
the exit and bear left at Market Street. Then take Van Ness (N) to
Broadway and make a Right. Go through the Broadway Tunnel to
Columbus, make a Right on Columbus, go about four blocks and make a
Right to Kearny, Right ON Kearny and a left into the garage just
past commercial. Further information is available at www.balug.org.


Network connections will be available through our Ricochet
gateway and we encourage you to bring your friends, family,
notebooks, questions, power strips, network hubs and appetites. In
addition to being a fun, creative and knowledgeable group, the
dinner alone is easily the best chow deal in the city. Speakers,
door prizes and other additional late breaking stuff can be found
at www.balug.org.

RSVP and questions to [email protected], and of course-
Rick Moen will be there!
