Other Business

  • Geek Swap - LUGOD held a swapmeet fundraiser at Doug Barbieri's house in South Davis. Lots of people came to sell, and some people even came to buy! We might have another one soon, at another member's house in A Street in downtown Davis.

  • LinuxWorld Expo - LUGOD shared our booth with the Electronic Frontier Foundation. We collected around $70 in donations, mostly from people who took 'Lose Windows Now, Ask Us How' bumper stickers the first day. Doug Barbieri, Mark Breitung, Ryan Castelluci, Stephen Helms, Dmitriy Ivanov, Bill Kendrick, Mike Simons, Melissa Hardenbrook, and Kevin Murakoshi helped staff the booth, which was a great success! Special thanks to Mike and Kevin for leeting people crash at their places in Dublin and Oakland, respectively. Also thanks to Charles McLaughlin for the awesome LUGOD sign for our booth!

  • Picn*x12 - About 200 people showed up to the 3rd annual Linux Anniversary Picnic in Sunnyvale! Oracle sponsored the event, and some donations were collected, which will be used to jumpstart next year's picnic!

  • ISSA Conference - We've been invited by the local ISSA chapter to have a Linux booth at the ISSA conference (security-related) in November at the Sacramento Convention Center. Mike Simons needs to contact them to confirm.

  • Financial Report - $22.61 in voluntary dues were collected.
