Subject: [CalLUG-announce] Eric S. Raymond to speak Monday

Open source advocate, developer and author Eric S. Raymond will be
speaking tomorrow, Monday May 6th, at 6pm in the Wozniak Lounge (4th
floor) of Soda Hall on the UC Berkeley campus, in an event
co-sponsored by CalLUG and the Computer Science Undergraduate
Association (CSUA).

Raymond, often referred to by his initials ESR, is a leading advocate
for open-source software. His paper "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" is
a classic analysis of the success of open-source methods, and he is
president of the Open Source Initiative. Raymond is also a prolific
developer, making major contributions to GNU Emacs and the Linux
kernel, and maintaining projects ranging from fetchmail to the
terminfo database and the Jargon File.

Refreshments will be served.

The Wozniak Lounge is at the north end of Soda Hall's fourth
floor. Turn right after coming in through the east (LeRoy avenue)
entrance, and go to the end of the hall. Directions to Soda Hall are
available on CalLUG's web site at
