I run the Penguins Unbound meeting.  I would *LOVE* to foster any links 
between Penguins Unbound(Linux/OSS Community) and Hack Factory. hummm.

Would love to talk about it. I can try and make it over to your Hack 
Factory, but not sure if I will have time this week. Or we can talk 
offline if you want to send me a email.

On the note of fostering a "hacking" community here in the Twin 
Cities/Minnesota,  have you heard
on NPR. (maybe that is what Fred O. heard on the NPR)

Thanks Steve and Fred.
