June 27th & 28th: the Portland Oregon Social Information Xchange

The Portland Oregon Social Information Xchange (POSIX) is taking place June 27th and 28th. This is your chance to meet other geeks who are involved with social activism and for activists to learn computer skills for free.
What is POSIX?
What characterizes POSIX 2003 is our wish to live these three days completely self-organized basing ourselves on our needs.
POSIX 2003 is a SELF-ORGANIZED event. There are neither organizers nor users, but only participants.

Social interaction has its economic underpinnings. Other underpinnings, class warfare, racist baiting, chauvanism's rudish provacators, come into play with Oregon engineers appalled with Seattle area's Highway Departments, The Worst builders, (highway and suburban Scpleck places), have also taken over Sound Transit, Regional RTD Boards. The incompetence is indemnic, reaching Sound Transit PissPoorly engineered, (but could be salvaged), LINK light rail. Bad Design No Excuse!! No one has a clue how to fix it, because all plans are haywire......
