     * Allen Schmidt, Sr. Programmer for - the  
website for the Free Lance-Star - will present on "Using Zope for  
Newspaper Publishing".

     * Jim Fulton, CTO of Zope Corporation, will present an  
abbreviated version of the argument given in Clemens Szyperski's  
Component Software for why both inheritance and delegation (e.g.  
acquisition) cause tight coupling and therefore should be avoided  
except in special circumstances.

     * We will serve delicious fruit, cheese, and soft drinks.

We've had a nice group for all the meetings. Please come and bring  

We also are now members of the O'Reilly and Apress user group
