Notes from the August meeting: 

=== Meeting ===

We have switched venues from The Waterhouse, to Marbella Cafe - a very 
interesting place in the Northern Quarter where Manchester Free Space 
recently set up a community LTSP cluster.
This seems a very appropriate location for a group of our nature. In 
addition, I can vouch for the cheap, *very nice* food and extremely 
friendly staff.

We will have an strong wifi connection so hopefully we can avoid the 
issues from the last meeting!

This creates the possibility that we could broadcast the meeting over 
VOIP... an interesting thought at least.

Due to some people having had difficulty finding the Marbella in the 
past, I suggest we meet *upstairs* not far from KFC at Piccadilly train 
station at about 12pm (look for geeks, laptops, t-shirts, signs saying 
"DFEY", stickers etc.) Once everyone has arrived, we will then move on 
to Marbella.
We aim to have finished by about 4pm.

To make sure everyone is at the station before we move on to the venue, 
it would help if you could sign up at our eventwax page here:


If you think a contact number might be helpful on the day, email me and 
I will sort one out :)

=== About DFEY-NW ===

DFEY-NW (Digital Freedom in Education and Youth) is a group formed in 
response from a growing need in the Northwest of England for a Group to 
encourage and promote young people's involvement with the free software 
community by creating a social space to make it more comfortable for 
young people to get involved with GLUGs and FSUGs.

If each of us have one object, and we exchange them, then each of us
still has one object.

has two ideas.   -  George Bernard Shaw
