Hi!  I'm afraid I computely failed to double-check with you until this
moment about the meeting announcement on the SVLUG Web site.  The detailed
version of that announcement is on http://www.svlug.org/meetings.php .
(A shortened form is on the site front page.)

As you probably recall from your prior talks, we like to send out a mail to
the svlug-announce mailing list (which distribution also goes to the main
list) at least 24 hours before each monthly talk.  So, we'll send one out no
later than early tomorrow evening - but maybe some time today.

Here is a draft that uses the same language as I put on n
http://www.svlug.org/meetings.php (which, obviously, borrowed from SVLUG's
past two meeting announcement for you and from the Meetup announcement.

Any corrections / changes / updates would be timely, and we'd be glad to
implement them soonest.

 Subject: SVLUG Jan 7th meeting: Alison Chaiken on Systemd: The Modern Linux init System You Will Learn to Love 


   Wednesday, Jan. 7th, 2015


  TOPIC: Systemd: The Modern Linux init System You Will Learn to Love

  Alison Chaiken

    The controversial systemd has absorbed udev, and purported to replace
    syslog with the journal daemon.  Recent decisions by Debian and Ubuntu to
    adopt systemd assure its prominence as a Linux init system.  Users and
    sysadmins are predictably horrified.  In fact, systemd is winning wide
    acceptance, our speaker says, because it is simpler, easier to use, and
    better documented than its competition.  Chaiken will describe how to get
    started with systemd, discuss some problems with it, and perform some
    simple demos.  Attendees should feel free to submit questions and
    diatribes in advance. 

    This presentation will be co-sponsored by the Silicon Valley Linux
    Technology Meetup,
    http://www.meetup.com/Silicon-Valley-Linux-Technology/ .


    MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Alison Chaiken (http://www.she-devel.com/) is a
    senior software engineer working in embedded Linux and middleware, and a
    longtime SVLUG member, who has been our featured speaker twice before,
    and is always an eagerly anticipated speaker.  She was in the recent past
    a MeeGo Technical Consultant at Nokia Mobility Solutions, and describes
    herself as 'a recovering physicist', who has computed primarily on Unix
    since the days of the VAX 11/750.  Before her work at Nokia, she worked
    on pervasive computing projects at HP Labs, then moved to Stanford
    Linear Accelerator Center to write instrument control and user interface
