Notes from the August meeting:
=== Meeting ===
We have switched venues from The Waterhouse, to Marbella Cafe - a very

addition, I can vouch for the cheap, *very nice* food and extremely
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
We aim to have finished by about 4pm.
To make sure everyone is at the station before we move on to the venue,

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.

still has one object.

has two ideas. - George Bernard Shaw
