As of recently, in about the past two months, I and several others have been interested in getting GSLUG back on it's feet. I was interested in doing this, and when I began to look into it more, found a group of people associated with the Ubuntu Pacific Northwest Team were also actively working to bring GSLUG back, and they even had a meeting location and time planned.
So, since then we've began working on the Wiki (http://wiki.gslug.org/) and have plans to make gslug.org point to it soon, after giving it a re-haul to make it more user friendly and not appear so wiki-ish to viewers. A big thanks to Eric Butler for his work on that.
Because of GSLUG's lengthy exodus, we have decided that our first meeting will be purely organizational. There will be no presentation per-se, but rather a round table discussion among those who wish to get GSLUG back on track. We encourage anyone who would like to help and shape the future of GSLUG to attend. We'll be discussing our meeting location and general structure. We'll likely also discuss the website/wiki.
If you're just looking to find out more about Linux, but aren't too interesting in the organizational side of things for GSLUG, then you probably shouldn't plan on attending this meeting. Hopefully we'll resume normal meetings within the next month of this organizational meeting, which everyone would then be welcome to attend.
If you do want to have a say in how the GSLUG meetings will be in the future, and would like to devote some time to help organize the group in the future, please join us!
Date/Time: Saturday, July 28th 2007 from 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Location: Suzzallo library room 328 on the University of Washington Campus in Seattle Washington
