 About Canonical:
 Canonical was founded by Mark Shuttleworth as part of his original vision
 to create software platforms that compete with the best but are free to
 use, share and develop.  Canonical's platform team leads the Ubuntu project
 and brings together the passion and genius of the open-source community.  

 About David Levin:
 David Levin works in Corporate Services at Canonical, and Tweets @ dslevin.
  He fondly remembers building CP/M systems from junked machnines to put
 himself through college.  As part of his mission to bring Ubuntu Linux to
 business, he's looking for companies looking to deploy cloud apps.  If
 that's you, you should contact him! David has also joined the ranks of
 those building our local Linux/FLOSS community here in New York.  

 About Mark Russell:
 Mark Russell is a system engineer working at Canonical, supporting major
 customers using Ubuntu Desktop and Server, Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, and
 Landscape Server.  Before jumping into Linux support full-time with Novell
 a few years ago, he spent 10 years in the IT trenches, supporting a bit of
 everything, including some less than open platforms.  However, he has found
 true FOSS bliss in the Ubuntu community and will never go back to the dark

 About Roberto Salazar:
 Roberto Salazar is an experienced IT professional who has helped improve
 business performance for major national and international corporations.  He
 has worked with a range of organisations to introduce and implement new
 hardware, software, and processes to maximise efficiency while reducing
 costs and complexity.  Prior to joining Canonical, Roberto was an
 enterprise architect for Sun Microsystems from 2001 to 2009.

 Meeting Location:
   Please note that this meeting will be held at IBM, 590 Madison Ave,
   12th floor, corner of 57th Street, and not at Google.  This is
   the building with the IBM logo on the front of the building.


 Swag (Give Away):
   During/after the meeting... unusually terrific swag may be given

   After the meeting ... You may wish to join up with other NYLUGgers
   for drinks and pub food.  This month we'll be over at TGI Friday's

   but we are also evaluating other options for the future and welcome
   your suggestions.

 Coding Workshops/Hacking Society:
   This is a group of people that wants to learn about and work on coding
   in Python, Smalltalk, Ruby, C++, LaTeX, and other languages, and hack on 
   There will also be help given for those who wish to install Linux for the
   first time.
   Sometimes they go out to eat afterward.
