These are just some semi-random topics of discussion some might find valuable as a presentation or group discussion.
Multimedia in Linux: MP3 and DVD ripping, burning, and playback
Gaming in Linux: Wine, TransGaming, Native, nVidia/ATI, OpenGL, etc.
Introduction to Emacs
Introduction to the Android SDK (for programmers)
Popular Linux hacking tools: nmap, Wireshark, Nessus, Metasploit
Pretty Good Privacy...so good it's illegal in some countries: E-mail encryption with gnupg and Enigmail add-on for Thunderbird
Virtualization, because it's in style: Virtualbox, VMWare, XEN, Win4Lin
The Worst Web Page in the Universe: a quick and dirty LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP) stack on your laptop
WYSIWYG: KDE, Gnome, and the "others"
I was thinking a managable format would be a one-hour presentation supported by projection and handwritten board, followed by Q/A and group discussion, ultimately degrading into Gnome vs. KDE flamefests.
Already filled out and submitted mine. By the way, that was the coolest Google Form I've ever seen! How did you do that?
So far, it's a toss up for July: Virtualization or PGP. If anyone else hits the survey, I'll check back. John - take your pick, looks like you're our July speaker either way. ;)
(We can decide on the September topic in person at the July meeting)
Aloha! Sorry been out of the loop this past week or so. I'm happy to teach PGP - it's probably the quickest, easiest thing to teach that people can use immediately and use as a basis for future discussion.
