7:20  Building a Sheet Music Publishing Platform
        presented by Dan Grover

      This talk will show how open source software (specifically
      GNU Lilypond and a python backend) was used in the creation 
      of Etude, a sheet music reader for iOS tablet devices.  It 
      will also touch on the ways closed and open source developers 
      can work together, and finally, how proprietary formats 
      threaten the growth of electronic sheet music.

      Dan Grover grew up in the Upper Valley, studied Computer 
      Science at Northeastern University, and moved to San 
      Francisco to build the software startup that made Etude.

8:50  New York Minute

      By popular request: bring your ideas, questions, advertisements,
      job offers/searches, etc., we'll go 'round the horn and make
      introductions and announcements.
