The Picn*x 15 Committee cordially invites all the friends of open source 
software to a picnic to be held Saturday August 19, 2006 from 11AM - 5PM 
at Sunnyvale's Baylands Park.  This years theme celebrates the tremendous 
progress made by the open source community over the last fifteen years, 
including, but not limited to, FreeBSD, GNU, Apache, MySQL, PERL, Python, 
PHP, OpenOffice, GIMP, and of course Linux.  There are over 70,000 open 
source projects.

August 19 is the Saturday following the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in 
San Francisco.  The Picn*x 15 Committee encourages Conference attendees to 
stay over for the picnic.  A large out-of-town turnout is expected since 
this year's Expo celebrates the 15th anniversary of Linux.  Early 
registration is advised.

For your inner geek, the picnic has activities like installing and 
troubleshooting software on your laptop, experimenting with wireless 
communication, and visits to local hardware stores.  For your inner child 
there is acoustic music, Frisbee, soccer, bocce ball, softball, volleyball 
and juggling.

The picnic is free to attendees, but reservations are required.  Many 
thanks to our sponsors, including Mirapoint, Raw Bandwidth, BayLISA, 
USENIX, GROUNDWORK Open Source, and Splunk. See http://www.linuxpicnic.org 
for additional information.
