If you can get to the Norristown High-Speed Line, formerly the Rt.100
High-Speed Line (it starts at 69th St. Station, I believe), there's a
stop in Bridgeport.  It's under a mile from the meeting location, and
we'll be able to find someone to shuttle.

Anyone else who's in the city and is on the edge of coming: consider
this option...we'll be able to find someone to pick you up at the
Bridgeport station.

We hope you can make it!  Let me know if the above public transit option
will work for you.

By the way: if anyone's feeling intimidated about giving a "lightning
talk" or what one is, don't be!  Five minutes is not long, and you can
talk about anything.  If you can't come up with a topic, RSVP anyway and
we'll help you figure something out!  Have you used a program for the
first time?  Talk about it, and why it's cool or it sucks.  Just
installed Linux or booted your first Live CD?  Talk about things that
were confusing to someone new to Linux.

Send in your RSVPs!
