NEW NET Issues List for 20 Nov 2007

Hmmmm...this is bad. Just noticed this is the first blog post since last week's NEW NET issues list. Between a couple projects and being out of town for a long weekend, the blogging received too little attention. Making up for that lapse will be a good goal for the upcoming week!

Below is the final list of issues for the TUESDAY, 20 November 2007, NEW NET (Northeast Wisconsin Network for Economy and Technology) 7:00 - 9:00 pm weekly gathering. This week we'll be back at the Stone Cellar Brewpub. It is located at 1004 S. Olde Oneida Street, Appleton, Wisconsin, USA. They have good food and beverages and free wireless, although the seating is less than optimal for a NEW NET meeting...
