Thanks for the POV and great idea John.
As previously mentioned, the LUG has recently been suffering from an
embarrassment of riches with high-quality, high-level talks from experts
on the topics. It hasn't always been this intense - I recall a
presentation on Linux toys at my first KWLUG meeting (sorry Richard, but
I did eventually buy a RoboDog...).
I think we could answer a lot of needs of new users by setting aside a
few meetings a year to focus on "Linux 101" topics. Topics accessible
to all can still be useful for all.
