About the presentation
From http://www.scribus.net, "Scribus is an open-source program that
brings award-winning professional page layout to Linux/Unix, MacOS X,
OS/2 and Windows desktops with a combination of "press-ready" output and
new approaches to page layout."
"Underneath the modern and user friendly interface, Scribus supports
professional publishing features, such as CMYK color, separations, ICC
color management and versatile PDF creation."
Ed has been a contributing activist to the FOSS movement in New
Hampshire for a number of years, doing presentations at the LUGs,
lending his expertise in Ham Radio during HamFests and doing
presentations to interested groups, like the New Hampshire Society for
Technology in Education (http://www.nhste.org/).
