Chicago GNOME Hackfest #3

Our third GNOME Hackfest in Chicago is scheduled for Saturday, December 15, from 11 am to 3 pm. It will be at Pumping Station: One (3519 N. Elston, Chicago). 

John Lambrechts will be giving a talk on window managers, and Chris Webber is tentatively scheduled to 
give an Intro to Emacs talk. 

I recently added some links for newcomers to our GNOME wiki page, so if this will be your first time 
coming to one of our events, please check out the links beforehand :)

 As Jim mentioned, some of the women involved thought that "GNIGHTS of GNOME" sounded like an event 
for men only, so we are looking for a new name. Any non-gendered suggestions are welcome :) That said, 
our last event was 40% women and hopefully we will be able to encourage even more diversity at our 
future meetings. This is, as always, a woman and LBGTQ friendly event. Hope to see you there, and happy
