Presentation topic suggestions

Do you have a great idea for a presentation topic at a future meeting? Add your topic suggestion to this list by composing a blog post. Tag your blog post with "Presentation topic suggestion" from the Type of post category.

A presentation topic suggestion should give some indication of the type of presentation you are suggesting. Is it for beginners, super-geniuses, or somewhere in between? You should also indicate if you are willing to present the topic yourself.

Those interested in the topic can add a comment. Those interested in volunteering to present the topic should definitely respond with a comment.

More pre-meeting ideas/rambling

Earlier in the year I started an hour long session with volunteers at The Working Centre to get them used to using Linux. I did some open office presentations. If people are interested, I could also show them during the pre-meeting.

In an unrelated note... I've also started putting the LUG books into Tellico.

Intro to OpenStreetMap.org

OpenStreetMap is a project aimed squarely at creating and providing free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them; the project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive or unexpected ways."

An introduction to the Who, What, Where, Why of OSM will be followed by a demo of the steps in collecting, categorizing and contributing data to OSM.
