(1) Gnubies meeting
 Wednesday December 10, 2003 Bruce Ingalls and Jay Sulzberger:
 Editing with Emacs

(2) Installfest:
 Sunday December 21st:


We are pleased to announce that we have two speakers for this month's
meeting jointly speaking on the the editor Emacs:

They are Bruce Ingalls, author of EMacro, a large .emacs to make Emacs
easier, and Jay Sulzberger, among many other things a Lisp whiz (Emacs
allows for amazing extensions using its version of Lisp.)  These two
speakers couldn't be more different in their speaking style and approach so
that alone should make this an interesting evening.

At an earlier date we had a presentation focusing on vi(m) and at that time
promised to eventually follow up with one on Emacs.  These are the two most
popular editors.  But, as you will hear, Emacs is far more than just an
editor, it is almost a world unto itself.  Also, Bruce pointed out in his
email accepting the invitation to speak that that "Emacs is the choice of
Richard M Stallman, Eric S Raymond, and Jay Sulzberger"

Bruce Ingalls teaches at a tech school, and has over 10 years of Linux
experience. He is also the author of which makes
Emacs easy. Even as a master of the ancient Scottish sport of Curling, NYC
Marathon runner, and 50K cross country ski racer, he has managed to stay 15
lbs overweight.

Jay Sulzberger is well known in the GNU/Linux community.  He is the
Secretary of LXNY, a mathematician, a Lisp whiz and a valuable advocate of
Free Software among other things.
