UniForum, SEF Co-sponsor Open Systems SIG

UniForum and the Software Entrepreneurs' Forum (SEF) have combined forces to co-sponsor what used to be the SEF UNIX Special Interest Group (SIG). The SIG's new name will be the SEF/UniForum Open Systems SIG. Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month in Palo Alto, CA.

The Software Entrepreneurs' Forum, started in 1983, is a leading Silicon Valley-based non-profit organization, with over 900 members, that is dedicated to software professionals, SEF informs and educates its members on all facets of the software industry.

The next meeting will feature three Internet activists seeking to capitalize on today's rampant Internet growth and commercialization: Andrew Conru, Internet Media Services, Palo Alto; Matisse Enzer, Internet consultant and educator, San Francisco; and Gary Kremen, Electric Classifieds, San Francisco. These diverse entrepreneurs will tell about their business and technical goals and what they believe the Internet is and isn't as a target for new business.

The meeting will be held at Digital Equipment Corp., 130 Lytton St., Palo Alto CA, Tuesday, July 12, 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is free for SEF and UniForum members and DEC employees, $10 for non-members and $5 for UniForum trial members.
