News for December 2007
We have decided to have a LoCo “Bug Day”. In which all members of the Loco are welcome to join us at Caffe Sole in Boulder (Table Mesa and Broadway) on January 3rd, 2008. We will also be meeting along side with the Hacking Society.
We have also had suggestions of small groups of Loco members meeting up around Colorado to join us on IRC to help each other out with questions. So if you would like to help set up a small group. Please email the list with your suggested location.

In this interview Jim talks about his recent Post that he did on his blog in response to an article in Discover Magazine by Jaron Lanier. A lot of you may have read this already or seen it on Digg.
