Re: [SGVLUG] publicity broadcast (spam ?)
Regarding relationships with <media types>. One such that comes to mind
immediately is Steve Bass, founder and operator of PIBMUG* - Pasadena IBM Users
Group. In addition to running one of the country's more successful and
influential user groups, Steve is a columnist for PC World and other
publications, a radio talk show (KPCC) co-host, and I believe is or was recently
president of a national association of users groups.
I have been a member of PIBMUG for some years now, and know Steve to be a very
high integrity type who literally has gone the extra mile <for me and others>
on many occasions. Indeed, PIBMUG is the forum where I was first introduced to
Linux just this past February when he invited Jeff Lansman to present a talk
about and demonstration of Linux. It was at that meeting that I discovered the
SGVLUG since Ocie Mitchell was manning the computer while Jeff presented.
Good grief, I've gone long winded again! Anyway, I believe Steve would be
interested in the fact that there is a central point of communication for Linux
in Southern California.
BTW - Steve requested info for an upcoming article awhile back and as a result
I introduced him to Frank Keeney of SGVLUG. In addition to assisting Steve with
his research, Frank will be a presenter on the subject of computer
security at PIBMUG's October meeting. (Wed, Oct 6th)
