6:53pm at FreeGeek -- 1731 SE 10th Ave.

speaker:  Jaap Karssenberg
topic:    Gtk-Perl + Zim (an "un-collaborative wiki")

  * an example program in Gtk,to demonstrate the basics
  * the freedesktop mime and application bindings
    (programming for the desktop (as opposed to the web))
  * a quick Zim demo
  * advanced Gtk slides at the end if everyone behaves themselves

Followed by beer at the Lucky Lab.

(Note:  gtk is the "gimp toolkit" GUI widget set/API (e.g. gimp, gnome, 
most gui programs starting with 'g', etc.))

(Also note:  freedesktop is an open standards initiative for things 
like .desktop files, thumbnails, and various other interoperability 
bits on linux (and anywhere else they can get away with it.))

(Also also note:  The originally scheduled talk "my first CPAN 
module(s)" has been rescheduled for July.)
