[nycbug-talk] Firefox release party and NYC tech community

A couple of us made the Firefox release party. . .
I heard about it last minute, and unfortunately didn't know early

It wasn't packed (and it wasn't a free open bar either <g>), but there
was a good number of people I know well or distantly know in the user
group community in NYC.
Nothing particularly interesting about Firefox/Mozilla mentioned in any
discussion I had, in case anyone is curious. Besides Lynx and Firefox,
what other browsers are there anyway? ;-)

talk to Debian people about anyway?). For anyone interested it's at
Next time I'll be clued into these types of events sooner, so I'll pass
the word on. . .
