UKUUG Annual General Meeting 2007
UKUUG's 2007 Annual General Meeting will be held from 6:15pm on Wednesday 26th September, at University College London, Cruciform Building (Lecture Theatre 2), Gower Street, London, WC1E 6AE.
The post-AGM talk (7pm start) is entitled The Linux Desktop, present and future presented by Michael Meeks - Distinguished Engineer at Novell.
"A light-hearted look at the desktop, from past to present, to Novell's role, and vision. We will prod some of the new toys coming into the desktop, from promising technologies to curvaceous applications, and meditate on the wonders of our new on-line world.
Finally, Michael will shamelessly plug whatever project is interesting today, and attempt to wildly extrapolate the near future, for people's amusement - to rob Gascoigne: "I never predict anything, and I never will!".
Michael is a Christian and enthusiastic believer in Free software. He very much enjoys working for Novell where as a member of the Desktop research team he has worked on desktop infrastructure and applications, particularly the CORBA, Bonobo, Nautilus and accessibility, amongst other interesting things. He now works full time leading the OpenOffice.org team. Prior to this he worked for Quantel gaining expertise in real time AV editing and playback achieved with high performance focused hardware / software solutions.
You do not have to attend the AGM or be a member of UKUUG to attend the talk.
