This is a reminder that the inaugural seminar of the 2009-2010 Harvard
Computer Society Seminar Series, "Linux Demystified", is *starting in 15
minutes in Maxwell-Dworkin room 119*. Come on down if you've ever wondered
about "Linux", or that black terminal thing!


Linux Demystified*

*Where: Maxwell-Dworkin 119
When: 7pm Tuesday, Sept. 15*

*A few reasons you should care about Linux:*

   - *Interested in being a serious hacker? * Dive into the tool used by the
   pros and learn what it takes.  Catch expert tips and tricks to be up and
   running in minutes.  Linux is the OS you want -- no, *need* -- to run to
   disassemble binaries, debug code, host websites, and build killer apps.
   - *Hate Microsoft?  Apple isn't much better?  *There *is* a third option,
   and it's free and easy to use.  See the light and you may never turn back.
   - *Interested in human nature?* Come learn about arguably the most
   successful collective action effort in the history of the world.  Didn't
   think anything could come out of dispersed worldwide team working for little
   or no pay?  We'll show you a counterexample.
   - *Taking CS 50?  *You'll be using Linux for all of your psets anyway.
   Optimal strategy is to conquer Linux now rather than be conquered later.

No previous Linux experience required. Recommended especially for students
in CS50.  This event is the first in the 2009-2010 HCS Seminar Series.
Sponsored by CS50.

Speakers: Greg Brockman (brockman at hcs.harvard.edu) and Andy Brody (
abrody at hcs.harvard.edu).

The HCS seminar series provides an open forum for members of the Harvard
community to speak about topics in computers, technology, and the universe
in general.  See http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/events for an up-to-the-minute
schedule of talks.  Interested in giving a seminar?  Submit a brief
