How Standards Proliferate
-------------------------

Situation: There are 14 competing standards.

Jack: 14?! Ridiculous! We need to develop one universal standard that covers
everyone's use cases.

Sophie: Yeah!

[Soon:] Situation: There are 15 competing standards.

This comics kinda summarises my attempt at reviving TelFOSS (= the Tel Aviv Open
Source Club) in order to create an open-source and computing club in Tel Aviv
and vicinity, which will be as comprehensive as possible.

The site can now be found at the new URL of:

http://tel.foss.org.il/ [old_site]

And I am planning to have monthly meetings. I believe I can find a room in Shenkar
College, but if you have alternative rooms, feel free to suggest them.

We are looking for talks about any subject that is related to free and open-source
software (FOSS). Talks should be no longer than two hours. If you are interested in giving
a talk E-mail me at shlomif at shlomifish.org .

The reason that the club was inactive since 2010 is because I lacked the energy to organise
meetings, and no one else volunteered to do it instead. In the meanwhile, there has been
an inflation of semi-active, and more specialised, clubs.

Regards,

	Shlomi Fish

[old_site] - there's an old site at http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/telux/ , but I am no longer
able to update it, so please ignore it.
