Subject: [nylug-announce] NYLUG August meetings changes / Perry Metzger
tomorrow at LispNYC

We'd quickly like to let you know about the following changes:

NYLUG August General Meeting
Was: August 14th
Now: August 29th
Topic: Jim Gleason on "applying open source lessons to the greening of

Everyone who RSVP'd for the 14th should have been notified about the
date change over a week ago. You can "un-RSVP" by logging in to the
RSVP system and clicking the "unregister for this meeting" button should
you be on the RSVP list and want not to be.

NYLUG August 14th Python Workshop
Was: going to be rescheduled or skipped due to the scheduling conflict
Now: we're going to hear Perry Metzger's talk at LispNYC instead
When: Tuesday, August 14th from 7:00 to 9:00

Topic: Otter, a new dialect of Lisp.

Perry Metzger Presents: Otter, a new dialect of Lisp. Otter is strongly
influenced by Scheme and Python, with some bits of inspiration from
Common Lisp, Perl and other languages thrown in, as well as some strange
ideas Perry came up up with on his own. The results may be pleasing to
some and are guaranteed to be repulsive to others. If you're tired of
waiting for Paul Graham to release Arc, you may find Otter interesting.
If you don't care if Paul Graham ever releases Arc, you may also find
Otter interesting. In the unlikely event that all goes according to
plan, a prototype Otter interpreter will be released as open source the
same evening as the talk.

Location: Trinity Lutheran
602 E. 9th St. & Ave B, on Tompkins Square Park

* From the N,R,W (8th Street NYU Stop) and the 6 (Astor Place Stop):
Walk East 4 blocks on St. Marks, cross Tompkins Square Park.

* From the F&V (2nd Ave Stop): Walk E one or two blocks, turn north
for 8 short blocks

* From the L (1st Ave Stop): Walk E one block, turn south for 5 short

* From bus lines: The M9 drops you off at the doorstep and the M15 is
near, just get off at St. Marks & 1st Ave.

* To get there by car: Take the FDR (East River Drive) to Houston then
go NW till you're at 9th & B. Week-night parking isn't bad at all,
but if you're paranoid about your Caddy or in a hurry, there is a
parking garage on 9th between 1st and 3rd Ave.
