Passing this along because of the offer to speak at the Sept. 19
meeting.  I'm guessing that is a new offer, as I see nothing about this 
on the Web site or recent mailing list archive entries.  

I'm assuming the answer is "yes" but that somebody _ELSE_ is going to 
nail down details with her, I hope.  ;->  I'm just back from a week out
of town, and digging out from a pile of e-mails and other things.
(Also, I've never handled speaker arrangements, and am about 60km out of

I'll straighten out her confusion about the e-mail addresses.

Quoting Rebecca Witt (rwitt@friendster.com):

> I was wondering if you distribute job postings to your members?

BALUG welcomes jobs postings from companies that are willing to, at the
same time, submit proposals for a technical talks to our membership at
one of the upcoming monthly meetings.  If Friendster would like to do
that, we'd love it!  Full details are at
http://lists.balug.org/listinfo.cgi/balug-talk-balug.org , the
"listinfo" page for our main mailing list -- which also specifies the
mailing list address you can then send your jobs posting to.

(We would not need to distribute your posting for you; you'd just post
it directly.)

While I don't have a confirmed speaker yet, it's going to be someone
from our Ops team or the VP of Eng himself!  The talk will have
something to do with Friendster's use of open-source technology in
large-scale production.  Any requests!?!  This would be for the 9/19
meeting at Four Seas correct?
