Next Tuesday evening the Internet Developer Group will cover a topic that
will interest many on this list.  Peter Thoeny will discuss web
collaboration and the GPL'd TWiki project specifically.  If we resolve
security concerns, we hope to do the presentation from withing the TWiki
itself.  If web colaboration interests you, we hope to see you there.  The
standard announcement follows:

What:   Web Collaboration Tools - The TWiki in Particular

Who:    Peter Thoeny - Software Developer, Engineering Manager at Wind

Dinner: Pizza for $4    starting at 7pm till 7:30pm.  If you're interested

        requests, we will honor the popular ones.

When:   Tuesday, May 20, 2003
        7:00-9:00 PM

Web collaboration empowers corporate sales organizations, software
development groups, and support groups to work faster and more
productively.  At May's Internet Developer Group Meeting we'll hear from
Peter Thoeny, the developer of TWiki, a leading open-source GPL web
collaboration tool.  It's in use at Wind River, Boeing, AMD, CNN and many
other large-to-small organizations with people who must work together, but
are located in geographically diverse locations.

Far more than video conference workspaces, web collaboration is used to
schedule, manage, document, support and present the work of task groups
that may co-reside in one building or be spread out around the world.
Their work may be secured or openly available.  Participants can
productively work from many different time zones.  The participants
themselves determine the culture of the work.

Join us for Pizza ($4 for the Pizza) at 7PM on Tuesday, May 20th to hear
about this evolving new work environment.
