Is the SG for peoplelike me? - or is it propellor-heads only? I would be particularlyinterested in how software - especially commercial software - getsdeveloped. Any info appreciated.2) Also, I am in Swindon (no, don't commiserate please, it'snot as badas they make out) where we are in the process of reviving the local BCSbranch. As part of that process, we are putting together a list ofpeople who are prepared to speak at future meetings. Open Source -particularly from a legal/security/commercialapplication standpoint,rather than the technical - was suggested as a topic of interest by acouple of members. Do you by any chance know of anyone who might fit thebill?Regards,/Peter Berry/Nothing I write is secret. Feel free to pass on to others anything aboveyou find of interest.If you wish to respond to me please mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org==========================================================================================Many thanks for this -and the links. Sarah Ewen sounds like anattractive prospect - any idea how we might contact her by any chance?You may be interested to hear that one of our pre-inaugurationactivities has been to have prospective members fill in a questionnaireasking, amongst other things, what they would like futurespeakers/activities to address - and Open Source is one of the mostpopular responses. So any names you could come up with would be reallyappreciated.Do I gather that the SG meetings are all London-based? Does the SG offeranything besides meetings?- and I called you Mike last time, getting confused by you e-mailaddress, I gather it's Malcolm - so apologies for that.Thanks again,Regards,/Peter Berry//=========================================================================/I have to go to Japan for 6 weeks so it is difficult for me to organisethis. If anyone wants to pick this upand run with it that would be good. The legal aspects look interestingas we had a lead at the inauguralmeeting of a potential speaker.I promised Peter Berry to get back to him with potential speakers butrather than just give out the groupscontacts perhaps a joint meeting would be in order.Malcolm
