If you are reading this message and you are in the Seattle area, you are
welcome to attend Cognition Group's first ever Open Source Development
Open House.  The open house is being held for open source developers and
companies that use open source to gather and collaborate on projects,
discuss work opportunities, and strategize about open source.  While
most open source groups focus on making a statement about the evils of
proprietary software, this open house will focus on how developers can
band together and work on projects and how to involve companies of any
size in the work.

Here's what you'll do at the open house:

	Learn about getting support for your open source projects.

	Meet other open source developers who want to meet up to
	collaborate on projects.

	Meet people who can give you work.

	Learn about Cognition's open source developer collective.
	Participate in a raffle (optional) for two tickets to Seattle's
	IMAX theater

	Listen to special guest Tom Brophy, an internal senior
	recruiting coordinator (internal recruiter) for Avenue-A

You should go if you are:

	an Open Source developer
	working at a company that uses Open Source
	a student
	an IT project manager
	a legal professional dealing with open source licensing and
		branding issues
	looking for work as a developer

Where it's taking place:
	The Seattle Actors Theater
	140 Western Avenue West
	Seattle, WA

When it's happening:
	Saturday, January 19, 2008
	2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Why is this happening:
	Because everyone needs open source, and developers need a place
	to collaborate.

How it's getting done:
	This event is organized and made available to the public by
	Cognition Group, Inc., an open source development firm.

Cognition's Open Source Developer's open house will be held monthly.
Future dates are yet to be announced.
