April 10 Meeting - "5 big ideas of ibiblio, 3 laws of ibiblio"

For the past 15 years, ibiblio has remained one of the major brands in the Open Source ecosystem providing services to over 3,000 projects in Open Source and Open Information. A center for collaboration, innovation and service, ibiblio (as sunsite.unc.edu and later as metalab.unc.edu) pioneered website hosting, Internet radio, network-distributed Linux distributions , and other ground- breaking activities.

Paul Jones, founder and director of ibiblio.org, will talk about how the Big Ideas are put into practice and how they have played out in such
specific projects as Project Gutenberg, Groklaw, Degree Confluence, eTree.org, The Linux Documentation Project, Roger McGuinn's Folk Den and other ibiblio-hosted and supported projects.

January 2008 Meeting - Zenoss Core with Mark Turner

The January 2008 meeting of the Triangle Linux Users Group will be held on January 10 at Red Hat in Raleigh, NC at 7:00PM. Directions available at http://www.redhat.com/about/contact/ww/americas/raleigh.html

This month's topic is Zenoss Core. Zenoss Core is an open-source network management platform which monitors your applications, servers, and network infrastructure using SNMP, syslog, polling - even custom scripts and Nagios plugins! The bells-and-whistles you get with this open-source platform, like its Ajax-based user interface and integration with Google Maps, will truly dazzle you.

Come to the January meeting and see why this impressive, GPL-licensed management platform is among the top five Sourceforge downloads. Mark Turner of Zenoss will be presenting.

Also - starting this month, we'll be raffling off tech books, gadgets, etc, so show up and get your ticket.
