This is going to be an exciting meeting.  We're teaming up with Neuros 
to organize a community to develop on, and hack at, this cool new 
embedded media device:

If you're interested in helping with this project, please stop by.  Joe 
will be explaining all about it during his presentation.

Also of note is that we're working directly with Peter Brown and the FSF 
to organize Chicago's October 3rd "Day Against DRM."  Lots more about 
this campaign during our meeting, and find more immediate information

As always, this is a BYOB event, and we'll be running up to the Goose 
Island Brewery for some  food and drinks afterwards.  Look forward to 
seeing everyone there, and thanks again to all the people who have 
helped put this meeting together.

Happy Hacking!
