 Subject: GNUbies September 8, 2004 - Sam Hiser

 Sorry this is so terribly late.  I was waiting to hear from our speaker.
 (Please note security procedures below)

 We are pleased to announce that Sam Hiser will once again be speaking at
 GNUbies tomorrow night, that is Wednesday September 8, 2004.  As you may
  recall he has given presentations on in the past.  And
 this will undoubtedly be part of his talk this Wednesday night
 - that is TOMORROW night.

 The final title for the talk was never confirmed, but he will be talking
 about both and the desktop.

 He has said he would demonstrate Sun's GNU/Linux desktop --
 called the Java Desktop System -- in context of Sun's overall Java
 branding strategy and introduce some of the new features in the new
 OpenOffice2 (beta), including the new database module called OpenOffice

 And one of the titles he sugested was "Free Software for the Enterprise:
 Sun's Java Desktop System in Context."  Please bear in mind thouh that
 this was not finalized and that will be discussed as well.

 Sam Hiser, co-author of "Exploring Linux with the Java Desktop System"
 (O'Reilly Media), is a GNU/Linux consultant based in New York City. He
 was consultant to Sun Microsystems and Marketing Project Lead of the development project through its 20-millionth download.
 Hiser now contributes to, a community site providing support
 and resources to users of the Java Desktop System. He is a Contributing
 Editor of LinuxWorld Magazine and writes on information technology for
