NEW NET Issues List for 17 July 2007

Below is the final list of issues for the TUESDAY, 17 July 2007, NEW NET (Northeast Wisconsin Network for Economy and Technology) 7:00 - 9:00 pm weekly gathering upstairs at Tom's Drive In, 501 N Westhill Blvd, Appleton, Wisconsin, USA. The last time we met at Tom's was 12 June -- it was fun to check out some of the other locations in the Fox Cities that have some form of free wireless, a bit of food and beverages, and tables where tech enthusiasts could pull together and chat about whatever topics appealed to them.
