NEW NET Issues List for 23 May 2007

It's been another hectic, out-of-town week where non-tech activities kept me so busy that I somehow failed to post a single entry since the last NEW NET issues list. A continual challenge for me to improve my time management... An always-moving target for maintaining an appropriate balance between being involved and aware of the multitude of interesting activities and advancements going on out there in the world and setting priorities/keeping commitments.

Schedule Change for NEW NET This Week!!!

To accomodate other people's busy schedules, NEW NET is planning to meet on Wednesday this week, pending confirmation from Luke. That confirmation will be posted in an update to this blog post later today (Tuesday, 22 May).

Below is the final list of issues for the WEDNESDAY, 24 May 02007, NEW NET (Northeast Wisconsin Network for Economy and Technology) 6:59 - 9:00 pm weekly gathering upstairs at Tom's Drive In, 501 N Westhill Blvd, Appleton, Wisconsin, USA.
