NEW NET Issues List for 26 Jun 2007

Below is the final list of issues for the Tuesday, 26 Jun 2007, NEW NET (Northeast Wisconsin Network for Economy and Technology) 7:00 pm weekly gathering. The Stone Yard is the site of today's tech enthusiast meeting, located at or near W3010 Edgewood Trail, Appleton, Wisconsin, USA. The reason for the "at or near" prepositional phraseology is because the address doesn't seem to work particularly well with online maps from Google, Mapquest, Yahoo or MSN. However, Andy M's directions are to take Ballard Rd north from Hwy 41, hang a right on JJ/Edgewood at the light by North High School, then The Stone Yard is on that street just past The Player's Choice.
