                            MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT

             PLUG Meeting will be different than normal

                          Richard Stallman
                           is speaking at
                     Portland State University
                 during PLUG's normal meeting time.

        So, instead of having a PLUG meeting we will attend
               Richard Stallman's talk at 7:30 PM at

        The PSU Native American Student and Community Center
                         710 SW Jackson St
                       Portland Oregon 97201

    And if Stallman's talk gets out early enough we will
    go over to The Lucky Lab Northwest Beerhall at 1945 NW Quimby
    Portland, Oregon afterwards.

                              Abstract
                                for
                       Richard Stallman Talk

                            Presented by
                     Portland State University
                             Chapter of
                 Association of Computing Machinery

    The Free Software Movement campaigns for computer users' freedom
    to cooperate and control their own computing. The Free Software
    Movement developed the GNU operating system, typically used with
    the Linux kernel, specifically to make these freedoms possible.

    The Portland State University Chapter of the Association for
    Computing Machinery and the Computer Science Department are proud
    to welcome Richard Stallman to PSU for this general-interest talk.
    Mr. Stallman is the father of the free software movement and the
    concept of 'copyleft', the original author of GNU Emacs, the GNU
    Compiler Collection, and many of the utilities used in the GNU/Linux
    operating system.

    This event is free and open to the general public. Mr. Stallman will
    be available for a brief Q&A session following the talk.
