Hi Bob

I would definitely support something GNU/Linux'y. His last two visits 
were informative and, as always, sparked passionate discussions. I have 
also been to one of his GNU Emacs workshops in the past and recommend it 
to everyone.

How about a Q&A evening, with pre-submitted questions having priority?

Questions might range from "history of the GNU project", "GCC design", 
"GNU Emacs and sainthood" to "successful Free Software activism" and 
"the Aus govt still wants to run the Internet".

Alternatively, a tute/talk on GNU make.
