**William Lindley: 75 Years of Computing in 60 Minutes*
The roots of modern digital computing go back nearly two hundred years,
and through a series of pass-around artifacts from the past century, we
will explore how the pioneers of the field and their groundbreaking
decisions and technologies have led us -- for better or worse -- to
today's Internet-enabled world.

*About William*
Mr. Lindley has been in the computer industry since he sold his first
program (a printer driver for Heathkit HDOS) in 1980. He has used system
from the earliest 8-bit microprocessors, through the PDP-11 and VAX, up
to IBM mainframes, and has managed to write programs that did not crash
on most of them. Mr. Lindley has been a GNU/Linux user since 1992 and
has been free of proprietary software since 2001. Most recently he has
been pleased to be an adjunct professor at Mesa Community College.


The meeting will start at 7pm at The Desert Breeze Substation.  People
start arriving as early as 6pm, so if you would like to help setup
and/or chat for a while, arrive a little early.
*Meeting Location*:
Desert Breeze Substation
251 North Desert Breeze Blvd West
Chandler, AZ 85226

The Desert Breeze Substation is on Chandler Blvd and Desert Breeze Blvd,
which is half way between McClintock and Rural.  It is very close to
both the south 202 and 101 freeways.  Public transportation is
available into the late hours.

For more information see the meeting information on our web site

We will go for food (usually to BJs at the Chandler Fashion Center Mall)
after the meeting so we can chat with each other comfortably. Please
feel free to join us. Please come even if you aren't hungry, the food is
not mandatory.

See you there,
Brian Cluff
