Another OSUG was born in Brazil, ValeOSUG was droves by Renato Puccini and his classmates of FATEC University, in Sao Paulo state. A couple of weeks a go, Renato came to Porto Alegre for fisl10. He learned a lot about OpenSolaris, and now created other OSUG :)
It's very good to know that there are more guys working, discussing, hacking and learned about OpenSolaris in Brazil. His initiative need to be "broadcast" to encourage more people in Brazil and south america!

Casual meeting

Today happened the first PoaOSUG "casual meeting" where laptops are not allowed :)
I just send a mail for our list that said "I'll be in the bar drinking beer at 6:30pm . If someone want drink with me and talk about OpenSolaris, feel free". In fact I really dosen't have any plans, just talk with the guys of group. The result: Dionatan, Leandro and Rafael came to bar, Cristiano said that he dosen't saw the mail... We done a kind of brain storm for the next meetings and next tech-talks. Also we discuss some actions for the fisl10 that will occour from June 24 to June 27 in Porto Alegre.
It was a very nice meeting.

The regulation of Internet in France

Yesterday the French politics approved yours Internet's regulation, with the lobby of Carla Bruni (singer, model and French First Lady).
According the text that I read in BusinessWeek and CNN everybody that use P2P for illegal purpose will be notified by the government in the first and second use. And in the third time the user will be blocked in your ISP and will be prohibited to sign any contract with another provider, also the user will be forced to keep paying your actual ISP.

The regulation needs to be approved by the CE. But I was thinking... How the French government will detect who are use P2P for illegal reasons? And how the government will define what is illegal reason? I'm not sure, but this subject might think in privacy problems.
Here in Brazil our government are discuss an similar law. Unfortunately the Brazilian's regulation has some obscure details. Nobody knows this details for explain to the community.

Bad times

Last Saturday happened another GeJun's meeting at Unisinos. In totally are 21 students learned what is consists an class, method, attributes, inheritance and some Java concepts. But this meeting was different... Ronaldo Prass one of the group's founder and responsible for the numbers at Unisinos needs to lay off, unfortunately.
They are allocated in several projects in his work and dosen't have time for the meetings. Ronaldo promise that he will keep sending mail in the mailing list and discuss virtually.

But as said in the song "we can't stop the show"
And for this reason I'm assume the meetings at Unisinos, with the support of another "old-guys" in group. Márcio Leal, Felipe Gross and others will help conduct the java classes and we will continue using the Jedi's project.

Tanks Ronaldo!
