Jesse, you are now on the Web site as the speaker for (important!):
MARCH 2ND, 2016.

Please see:

If any of this is incorrect or needs to be updated/improved (or cancelled),
please coordinate with the SVLUG Volunteers mailing list (CCd).
I will, starting tomorrow, be on a cruise ship going across the Pacific
Ocean, and probably not very reachable (if I have anything to say about

I also have a lead on a speaker for April 2016 or later, Kyle Rankin
giving his talk 'Simple but Effective Server Hardening', that he
gave at North Bay Linux User Group and also yesterday at SCALE14x.

Jesse, it is particularly important that you speak up if for some reason
you _cannot_ give the IoT talk, so we can reshuffle the schedule.
