Hi Software Freedom Lovers

It's that time of the year when we look back and think about the Free
Software that has improved our lives and given us all so much joy. So join
us this Thursday November the 17th at Electron Workshop (31 Arden Street)
for our last meetup in the usual place this year for a "Free Software Show
and Tell". We'll each go round and talk for a few minutes about the one or
two pieces of Free and Open Source Software that has made a big impact on
us this year

It can be something you've just heared about and it sparked your interest
or something you've come to rely upon day in and day out

If you're stuck for ideas you can always review some of the release
sections of our gnews (conveniently linked below) or resort to just ranting
about Stallman and Torvalds for a bit for that matter. Or maybe it was a
video discussing the concepts of FLOSS that caught your attention this year

At 6:30 Michael Verrenkamp will kick us off with call to action on a
campaign he's supporting and then we'll get into the show and tells. When
we finish those we'll celebrate the last meetup of the year with pizza for
dinner and finish the night off with our usual Gnews and Discussion and aim
to wrap up around 8:00

I know I picked up a few new tools last year at the show and tell and it's
always a fun night, so I'm cracking to see you all there on the 17th!
