Subject: Announcing New Israeli Tech User Groups

Hi all,

My series of books about mastering UNIX tools (see: the announcement of the book Mastering cat) has enjoyed tremendous success, and now I decided to take it to the next logical level. As a result, I have decided to start up several special interest groups (SIGs) or user groups for the tools that I covered in the series:

  • - the Tel Aviv cat(1) mongers.

  • - the Haifa echo chamberists.

  • Jerusalem.tb - the Jerusalem true believers.

  • Eilat.fh - the Eilat false hoodies.

We will soon announce the upcoming meetings of these user-groups on our calendar.

Best regards,

— Shlomi Fish
