For our 2014-06-17 BALUG meeting we're proud to present:
Stories! / Open Mic!, Michael Paoli, ...

Come see and hear - and share - interesting stories from the Linux/Open
Source/IT trenches! Troubleshooting, oddball problems, triumphs,
defeats, silly, odd and strange happenings, experiences, and
observations, things companies/employers/vendors have done well and
great at, messed up, or had unintended consequences - good or bad,
things peers have done, noteworthy behaviors seen in software,
hardware, persons or organizations, etc.

Michael Paoli will host and also tell some stories.  Michael has worked
with Linux and Open Source in excess of 15 years - not to mention doing
it lots for fun too, and has worked in IT and electronics for decades.

So, if you'd like to join us please RSVP to:


**Why RSVP??**

Well, don't worry we won't turn you away, but the RSVPs really help
BALUG and the Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and meeting, and with
sufficient attendance, they also help ensure that we'll be able to eat
upstairs in the private banquet room.
