It would be REAL NICE (yes I am talking to you tweeks) if someone could
share some more info about this supposed IEEE/Trintiy talk with RMS.
Members of this LUG might just be interested in attending such a talk.
He is after all a major contributor to F/OSS as well as the author of
GPL. Kinda fits with the whole purpose of being a part of a LUG you
think and participating with the community...I am sure thats why he
gives talks after all.
