For our meeting Jan. 11, Donna Snow will re-visit and update her Plone 
presentation.  Jan. 11 is the final meeting I have planned.  Jim Stockford 
has agreed to arrange some future meetings.  Feb. 8 follows in 4 weeks.  If 
you are interested in organizing BayPiggies meetings, I am sure Jim would 
appreciate hearing from potential collaborators and speakers.

Following is the abstract Donna prepared for Jan. 11:
