NEW NET Issues List for 06 Nov 2007

NEW NET will once again gather at what is becoming a favorite, albeit a tad pricey, watering hole -- the Cambria Suites Hotel on the north side of Appleton. Cambria has free wireless, excellent quality and not-your-run-of-the-mill edibles for those who didn't manage to eat the evening meal before rushing off to NEW NET, et les boissons délicieux, including Wolfgang Puck beverages and bottled soda with pure cane sugar. Below is the final list of issues for the TUESDAY, 06 November 2007, NEW NET (Northeast Wisconsin Network for Economy and Technology) 7:00 - 9:00 pm weekly gathering at Cambria Suites Hotel, 3940 N. Gateway Drive, Appleton Wisconsin, USA.
