      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)
