The Electronic Pi

Washington Apple Pi has a wide range of electronic services, from a busy Web site to electronic forums to E-mail service to mailing lists to (for Explorer subscribers) dial-up Internet connectivity and member Web sites. The March 27 General Meeting featured a review of these services, plus a major announcement of new telecommunications capabilities: the Pi has moved to a high-speed T-1 line in cooperation with Heller Internet Services.

March 2004 Audience

A good crowd was on hand for the March General Meeting in the Forum at Northern Virginia Community College. Through amazingly poor planning, we missed the Ides of March, arguably the best time to meet in the Forum… (Photo by Richard Sanderson, taken with a Nikon D-100 digital camera.)

Lawrence Charters and Jon Thomason

Pi Webmaster Lawrence Charters talks about the Pi’s electronic services at the March General Meeting as Jon Thomason, author and software architect for many of those services, “drives” the machine connected to the projector. Note Jon’s bug-eyed, fish-shaped “lunchbox” at the edge of the table, used for transporting various small pieces of electronic gear.
