Greetings all,

You may find it interesting that Mark Lord is speaking at OCLUG on
Tuesday night about "World Domination over USB."  All are welcome to
attend.  Details are on the OCLUG website.

AFAIK there is not yet an official Ottawa Hackerspace.  Perhaps this
talk would be a good opportunity to energize interested parties and
network to help put it together.  :)

Please accept my apologies for the late notice.  I only just
remembered our discussions from some time ago, so am e-mailing you
right away.


Vice-President, OCLUG

Volunteer, Computers for Communities

Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it
