NEW NET Issues List for 28 August 2007

Below is the final list of issues for the TUESDAY, 28 August 2007, NEW NET (Northeast Wisconsin Network for Economy and Technology) 7:00 - 9:00 pm weekly gathering. This week we'll try a new location for NEW NET, the Stone Cellar Brewpub. It is located at 1004 S. Olde Oneida Street, Appleton, Wisconsin, USA. Andy says a brewpub that serves "fish & chips" or "bangers & mash" gets a bit of respect just for trying.

As mentioned in a post last week on this blog, tonight we'll spend a bit of time discussion online maps and mapping tools. Bring tips, tricks and ways you use online maps that are especially fun or useful for you.


Trying out a new meeting location this week -- Stone Cellar Brewpub!
