[vox-announce] Reminder: Oct. 5th Linux Users' Group of Davismeeting: "gumstix"



The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD), will be holding a meeting on:

  Tuesday
  October 5, 2004
  6:30pm - 9:00pm


The meeting will be held at our regular location:

  Davis Public Library
  315 East 14th Street
  Davis, CA 95616


The topic will be:

  gumstix low-cost Linux devices
  presented by: Gordon Kruberg, Founder & CEO, gumstix, Inc.

    gumstix, Inc. creates the world's smallest commercially available
    Linux boards and computers.  Their devices are based on Intel's PXA255
    processor with Xscale technology (also used in high-end PDAs and
    smartphones), measure only 20mm x 80mm x 8mm -- the size of a stick
    of gum -- and cost as low as $109.  gumstix boards provide GPIO pins,
    serial ports, USB 1.1 client, an MMC flash memory card slot, and
    an I2C bus.

    Their's are among the first single board computers (SBCs) shipping with
    the new Linux 2.6 kernel, with its fully pre-emptible, multi-threading
    capabilties.

    Gordon Kruberg, Founder & CEO, founded, financed, and played
    operating and strategic executive roles in over 30 startups and
    venture-capital backed companies.  He holds an A.B. degree
    in Human Biology, a M.S. degree in Industrial Engineering from
    Stanford University and an M.D. degree from Northwestern University.

    (Gumstix will be bringing some devices to sell,
    and /possibly/ one or two to raffle off!)
