Dear OS/2/eComStation user,
It has been sometime ago that VOICE last organized a SpeakUp. What is a
SpeakUp? Well, its organized via IRC (Internet Relay Chat). On an IRC
SpeakUp you will get a chance to talk to software developers, for
instance. The person/organization/company invited for the SpeakUp will
give a short introduction about himself and the product or project they
work on. And then the real part of the SpeakUp starts! You can ask
questions! Do you like Warpstock (www.warpstock.org)? Warpstock is great,
but Warpstock is only organized once a year. Then you will like VOICE
SpeakUps (depending on the subject, of course). We will try and organize
SpeakUps every month on a subject of interest.
What is new, is that SpeakUps will be organized twice. The first VOICE
SpeakUp of the month will be targeted especially at the US. The second
meeting will be targeted at Asia and Australia. This targeting will be
accomplished by the timing of the IRC to suit the locale.
The first two VOICE SpeakUp will be organized in September. The guest on
that SpeakUp will be Jan van Wijk. Author the DFSEE, the swiss army knife
for hard disk maintenance and data recovery.
The following dates have been set (both are on a Saturday) 14 September
22:00-00:00 GMT (First SpeakUp targeted at US) 25 September 10:00-12:00
GMT (targetted at Asia and Australia). (Both times are London time!!)
