    Interested in joining the friendly global Free SW HW & Culture communities in a global Voice meeting? You´re invited. :)

    You can join from your home, or better: get a local meeting together. Tip: a college WiFi cafe could be a great local meeting place. Make sure you have a VOIP headset!

    For all details, see the website (I´m leaving out many sublinks to make this email smaller).

    Start by joining #berkeleytip on IRC freenode.net. We´ll help you get your VOIP connection working. :)

    ===== MARK YOUR CALENDARS: 1st Sat & 3rd Sunday each month. August 1 & 16.
    10A - 6P Pacific US time (+7H GMT, IIRC)
    = 1P-9P Eastern US time = 5P - 1A GMT ?

    Or, come to the local meeting on the UC Berkeley campus.
    NOTE: SPECIAL LOCATION AUG 1: SEE BTIP WEBSITE FOR LOCATION,
    & RSVP TO ME OR THE BTIP LISTS.

    AUG 1 MEETING WILL BE 12N - 3P AT THE BTIP VOIP SERVER LOCATION
    ON THE UCB CAMPUS. SEE THE WEBSITE FOR ROOM LOCATION.
    We´ll hack on the new BTIP Asterisk VOIP server, in its presence.

    PLEASE RSVP TO ME (John) OR THE LIST IF YOU WANT TO MEET AT OUR
    USUAL LOCATION, THE FREE SPEECH CAFE, 10A-12n, 3-6PM,
    (otherwise i might not be there).

    ===== MEETING TOPICS FOR AUGUST:
    1) Whatever _you_ want to work on - Email the BTIPGlobal list &
    let us know what your interests are.
    2) Our VOIP conference server, using Asterisk.
    3) Planning for year 2.

    ===== JOIN FOR THE START OF YEAR 2 GLOBAL MEETINGs:
    We had a great first year. We had local attendees from around the San Francisco Bay Area & Northern California. High School, College, Grad Students, & working & retired people attended.

    >From the US, people joined the meeting (IRC or VOIP) from Hawaii to Virgina, Washington to Michigan to Florida. (+ California & other states.)


    Globally, Sweden, Germany, England, Ireland, Iran & India (& maybe others I don´t recall right now.) :)

    In May Richard Stallman joined the global meeting for Q & A about free SW & HW.

    == YEAR 2 FOCUS: COLLEGE LOCAL MEETINGS, & AMERICAS´ ANNOUNCEMENTS.

    Two main things I´ll focus on this year:
    1) Inviting groups to join at colleges & universities - BTIP is educational.. My hope: if more students learn about free SW hw & culture, some of them will then go on to become _contributors_. :)

    2) I´ll try to get monthly announcements out to the biggest LUGs in the 10 largest countries in the Americas.

    == What would _YOU_ like to accomplish this year? Email the BTIP mail list, say ¨hi¨, tell us about your interests, projects & desires.

    ===== FOR FORWARDING - You are invited to forward this announcement wherever you think it might be appreciated.
