I'm not sure if I can go.  That would mean four round-trips to Berkeley
in four days.

You probably already know, but I thought I would repeat just in case.

Eric S. Raymond will give a talk on open-source software on Monday, May
6, at 6:00pm in the Wozniak Lounge in Soda Hall (on the fourth floor).

The talk will likely be of interest to students interested in
free/open-source software, which includes Linux and the GNU system, and
students interested in software development.

Eric S. Raymond, sometimes known as ESR, is an internationally-known
evangelist for open-source software. In 1997 he wrote "The Cathedral and
the Bazaar", a now-famous paper that analyzed different development
models for open-source software. He co-founded and is president of the
Open Source Initiative, which aims to spread open-source development. He
is one of the most prominant proponents of open-source software and
Linux to the business communities. He has worked on numerous open-source
projects, including GNU Emacs (an exceedingly popular text editor for
Unix), Nethack (a time-wasting computer game), fetchmail, INTERCAL, and
CML2 (the new Linux kernel configuration system). He maintains the
Jargon File, also known as the New Hacker's Dictionary.

Refreshments will be served, including pizza or something similar.

The talk is sponsered by the Computer Science Undergraduate Association
(CSUA) and CalLUG.
