[PLUG] [plug-announce] PLUG North, Tue, May 14, 2013 - Etherpad!, presented by Jonathan Simpson (at CoreDial in Blue Bell, 7pm)

This month, PLUG North welcomes Jonathan Simpson, who will be giving
a presentation about Etherpad, an online multi-user editor. Jonathan
describes his talk as follows:

  Etherpad is an open source collaborative editing package. For years,
  people have referred to IRC as "multiplayer notepad." Etherpad is the
  *real* multiplayer notepad.

  Etherpad allows multiple contributors to edit in real-time, and supports
  all sorts of nifty features for basic formatting, versioning, and more.

  I'll cover some uses for etherpad, some modifications I and others have
  made, and how I've used it within my own projects.

Come and talk with other Linux users about Free and Open Source Software!
Never been to a meeting before?  New to Linux?  Please help us plan an
series of new-user-friendly talks.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, May 14, from 7-9pm (7-8
General Q&A, 8-9 Presentation) at CoreDial in Blue Bell, PA.

  1787 Sentry Parkway West
