May 27-29 will feature the third meeting of PASIG, Sun's Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group, in San Francisco.

As someone who has been tracking the agenda as it has taken shape, I am looking forward to the strong line up of presentations & speakers--some from among DLF, and some from beyond.
