Ben Collins-Sussman and Brian "Fitz" Fitzpatrick, two of the engineers behind our project hosting service, will be joining us this week to discuss "How Open Source Projects Survive Poisonous People (And You Can Too)." Based on their experiences with the Apache, Subversion and other open source projects, Ben and Fitz will cover effective ways of dealing with difficult people who join your community.

Please feel free to join us for the presentation this Thursday, January 25th at our Corporate Headquarters in Mountain View. Doors will open at 6:30 PM and refreshments will be served. Ben and Fitz will begin speaking at 7:00 PM. Please plan to sign in at Building 41 reception when you arrive.

We hope to see you there!
