Final Meeting Agenda

10:00 --- Coffee

Please note that CH Ting will not be able to attend this month.

10:15 --- You've got to lively yourself up!- All present
We will discuss ways to rev up the monthly meetings and start thinking about Forth Day! Perhaps we'll discuss the pros and cons of alternate venues. How can we institute outreach to hobbyists, students, and robot builders?

11:00 --- Forth on the Internet - All present
We'll flip through a few back issues of Forth Dimensions, look around the Webring, Google "Forth", and generally poke around, provided an Internet connection is available.

Noon --- Lunch
Some folks bring their lunch, some folks go to Togos.

13:30 --- Introductions, announcements, rumors, and random access

14:00 --- Interesting Items - Volume 7 - Dave Jaffe
Dave will continue his survey of interesting newly-introduced microcontrollers, I/O peripherals, sensors, products, and gadgets that can provide useful and unique capabilities to Forth embedded systems. If anyone has come across anything that fits this category, pass them along to him for inclusion in his presentation.

14:30 --- Break

15:00 --- "The Fairchild Chronicles" - DVD Part 1 - Presented by Kevin Appert
We may just chat instead of watching this, but it might make for a worthwhile use of our time in lieu of actual content.

16:00 --- Adjourn

Coming to SVFIG next month:
DVD viewing??
Bring speaker suggestions!
Tour of TechShop?

If you have anything you'd like to talk about in February, please contact Kevin Appert.
