Maddog at February BBLISA meeting (talking about Project Caua)

Hi all:

The Back Bay LISA meeting on

   Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

will be with Jon "Maddog" Hall who is the Executive Director of Linux
International ( You may also know him from his many
articles or his "Linux for Dummies" book. He's also spoken at BLU at
least once in the past, and I'm betting many of you know who he is.

His talk is titled:

  Project Caua: Private Sector, Environmentally Friendly Jobs
     with Free Software

Project Caua is an Open project to create millions of private sector,
environmentally friendly jobs utilizing FOSS in urban areas of Latin
America, and millions more around the world. In addition, Project Caua
will open an avenue for free (as in beer) wireless Internet to help
defeat the digital divide, and to provide low-cost training to move
people off unemployment and create taxpayers. The specifications for
Project Caua can be found at This talk
will outline Project Caua and open the discussion for actual
implementation details.

As usual you can view the full announcement at:

and our future schedule at

Please come hear him talk; this is a *really* cool project!
