Re: [PLUG] We need speakers for February

+1 for intro talks.

Some of us have been using Unix and now Linux for 30 or more
years, but always willing to sit through an intro class to see what
might have changed that we missed, or how someone presents
and organizes the stuff we already know.  And always nice to meet
new folks.

BTW, I've been busy Mondays with a new ping pong club that
opened in West Chester PA, and tying to organize activities to
attract more players so the club can be financially viable.
Otherwise, it's not going to last long.  Any players out there?
Newbies and experts welcome.  Some of our players had never
played before a couple weeks ago, and some are ranked top 100
in the state of PA.  Wide range of skills!  Let me know...

I'm working on a new book. If you guys are desparate I suppose I could
talk about that.  When do you need a speaker for?

Central is this coming Wednesday (6 February); North is next Tuesday (12
February). The same original speaker for both had to cancel in one fell
swoop. I'd be down to hearing about your new book, and I'm sure many
others would be as well. It's been a while.

Alternatively, for at least one of these meetings, we could reboot (pun
intended) an intro series/talk of some sort. Even though we tend to
focus on advanced topics, I got some feedback from the local community
that there's not only not enough introductory Unix/Linux/open source
content in talks and such (things tend to focus on branded items like
Kubernetes and Docker and the various cloud stuff to say the least), but
there's some demand for an "apprenticeship" (don't read into that word
too much, just think of something guided at most) in Unix/Linux/open
source. I could probably whip up an intro talk or demo on short notice
for this month, just know that both meetings this month bookend business
events I have to be at…
