Here is pro-obama tech event that I thought might be of interest to people
on this list. There is an private reception following with Brian
Behlendorf, a primary developer of the Apache web server and board member
of Mozilla Foundation but they are requesting a donation to attend, you
will have to contact Angela for details.

After a month of working on it, we're finally ready to shout from our
battleground state rooftops...

Mark your calendar for October 10, 2008 at the Hilton Polaris! A
star-studded lineup of technology innovators is coming to Columbus to
discuss not only the future of Web 2.0, but also how the upcoming election
may greatly affect what they do and how they do it. This event is free but

seating so I encourage you to register today!  Come hear what these
innovators see as the next big thing, and why they believe Barack Obama’s
