  Main Topics)

         "Hypertext and Computer-Augmented-Thought (Xanadu and NLS)"
         By Matthew (Karamoon)

         "Semantic Web (aka Web of Data, aka Web 3.0)"
         By Nicolas Raoul

This month, Matthew (Karamoon) will give an overview of hypertext with
reference to the work of Ted Nelsons and Doug Engelbart.  Key concepts
such as intertwingularity, transclusion, virtuality, linking and
tumblers will be covered, as well as their relation to
human-computer-interaction and augmentation.

Our second speaker Nicolas Raoul will give an introduction to the
semantic web.  He will cover technical basics through an example, talk
about the benefits in terms of data openness and if time permits explore
open Source implementations.

If you are involved in a project or have something you would like to
talk about in this or a future technical meeting, we are always looking
for presenters.

Other items on the agenda are:
1. Introduction of new members, news about Linux/Open Source,
general announcements, Q&A
2. Auction

All Linux users and supporters of open source code and free software
are invited to attend this Tokyo Linux Users Group (TLUG) meeting.
Membership is open to anyone. There are no membership dues or entrance

After the meeting, we will continue chatting over a few beers.

About TLUG
TLUG is a non-profit, non-political organization established in June
of 1994 to exchange information on the use of Linux and Free Software
Foundation tools. TLUG has an active mailing list, home page, and
regular physical meetings. Discussions are primarily held in English,
but non-English speakers are encouraged to come and participate.
We especially want to encourage Japanese people to attend and will make
efforts to support a bilingual meeting.

TLUG generally hosts technical meetings every odd month on the 2nd
Saturday, and a nomikai (social even at a pub) every even month on the
2rd Friday.

The TLUG home page is available at
