                              Thursday 2012-08-30
                  Informal Meeting Only - No Scheduled Speaker


A Boston Lisp Meeting will take place on Thursday, August 30th 2012 at 1800 at
MIT 32-D463 (Star conference room). [That's tonight.]
However, our originally scheduled speaker, Eli Barzilay,
had to cancel for personal reasons.
This will therefore be an informal meeting.
There will be lightning talks, and afterwards those who want will go to dinner.

1 Lightning Talks

At every meeting, before the main talk, there are two slots for strictly timed
5-minute "Lightning Talks" each followed by 2 minutes for questions and

The slots for next meeting are still open. Step up and come talk about your pet
project! Contact me at fare at tunes.org.
