Hello from Stephen Gutknecht

I want to say a personal Thank You to Denis and I'm sure he will prove to be a good mentor.

My intention is to try to generate a higher profile for Austin LUG on websites like Facebook, door64.com and other social tech groups. A users group by nature is a social network - and I want to let these new social internet users know we are here! I invite suggestions along these lines as I'd like to see the established Linux users spreading the knowledge more.

I appreciate the opportunity to help the Linux and open source cause and I'm more than welcome to take feedback and suggestions. Thank you.

Stephen Gutknecht
FYI: I mostly live in South Austin but also spend weekends in Canyon Lake. I work for myself from home (and have since 1999). I have been attending Austin Jelly - a freeform group for people who work 'at home', and I encourage you to come visit during the daytime on Friday if you want to talk Linux or otherwise.
