Hello LUG,

This week's topic is open protocols. You probably know that a protocol
is a system of rules for having computers communicate with one
another. If a protocol is "open", the specification is publicly
available and anyone is allowed to write programs that implement that
protocol. Email is an example-- anyone can write software for sending
and receiving emails, and send and receive emails to/from everyone
else, who might be running completely different software. The talk
this week will go over some open protocols you might not have heard of

Additionally, if you didn't fill out the survey for LAN party dates
last week, it is still open: <>
