Next week's meeting on February 2nd is a series of short presentations 
on various BSD networking topics: from CARP to trunk/lagg, maybe some pf 
optimization and more.

If anyone's interested in participating, let admin@ know.  Nothing 
extensive, just some insights for others to benefit from for any of the 

The March 2nd meeting will feature Dru Lavigne--the well-known BSD 
advocate, writer, educator--presenting on BlueButton 
(http://www.bigbluebutton.org/), "open source web conferencing for 
distance learning."  Dru's blog is at http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/bsd-guru/.

Several more meetings are in the works after March, including a NetBSD 
Bugfest, in which NYC*BUG meeting attendees get directly involved in 
finding and documenting bugs in NetBSD.

Do you have an idea for a meeting?  Particularly a topic that would help 
your fellow sysadmins and developers around NYC*BUG?  Ping us at admin@ 
and give us your thoughts.

AsiaBSDCon (.org) is around the corner in March.

BSDCan (.org) is coming in May.

If you're going to either conference, make sure you ping others on the 
talk@ list to discuss travel arrangements, etc.

For those who haven't heard yet, NYCBSDCon 2010 raised over $14,000.  A 
remarkable feat for an open source conference.  Better yet, that profit 
meant that four checks of $3600 each went to DragonFly BSD, FreeBSD, 
NetBSD and OpenBSD.  Our impact on the community goes beyond mere 
monthly meetings, and such an accomplishment illustrates that most clearly.
