John Edwards for Net Neutrality

Paul, · Categories: General

This just out from John Edwards:

When MoveOn and The Christian Coalition agree about something, it’s a good bet they’re right. Groups as wide-ranging as Gun Owners of America on one side and U.S. PIRG and the One America Committee on the other are fighting to keep the Internet the way it is now – free and open to anyone with access to a computer.

BarCampRDU invite

Paul, · Categories: General

Fred has posted an invite to BarCampRDU to be circulated as widely as possible:

Dear Brilliant Geek/Author/Businessperson/Coder/Hacker/Artist/Musician/Guru,

You’re invited to BarCampRDU!

A BarCamp is an free, open-source unconference, where folks gather to learn, teach and geek out. What’s an unconference? Unconferences are like a regular conference, except that anyone can lead a session. As a result, a wide range of interests and skill levels are represented – making for an fun and unconventional teaching and learning experience.

BarCampRDU will be held on Saturday, July 22, 2006 at the Raleigh, NC headquarters of Red Hat, located on the NC State Centennial Campus. BarCampRDU is free to attend, but we’re limited to the first 150 folks who sign up. To sign up to attend, add your name to the BarCampRDU wiki. The conference is already almost 1/3 full of a lot of names you’ll recognize!

As BarCamp is a free event, we’ll need sponsors to cover the costs of feeding, hydrating and caffeinating the campers. If you or your company would like to sponsor BarCamp, contact Fred Stutzman at fred@metalab.unc.edu or leave your contact info on the wiki. Sponsors are absolutely crucial for making this event a success, so please consider sponsorship.

Thanks for thinking about attending BarCampRDU. It is going to be a great event, and we look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks,
Brilliant Geek/Author/Businessperson/Coder/Hacker/Artist/Musician/Guru
