  1. In April 2006, Redbrick will be 10 years old (since the network was
  2. first switched on). To celebrate and commemorate, we plan to organise
  3. both a cool event, and a deadly book, with all sorts of great
  4. information about Redbrick over the last 10 years (or any other ideas
  5. that people have to remember our time together). Why not [join the
  6. mailing
  7. list](http://lists.redbrick.dcu.ie/mailman/listinfo/redbrick-birthday)
  8. if you are interested in discussing it?
  9. Any suggestions or updates, please don\'t be afraid to put them up here!
  10. Come on! What would you like to see? What do you think should happen?
  11. How do you think we could do it? etc. etc. At the moment, we are working
  12. on (this is a rough list - please add to it! Ideas, or stuff you\'ve
  13. written!):
  14. You can also add comments and random suggestions in the [Discussion
  15. Aera](/Talk:Redbrick_Anniversary "wikilink").
  16. Redbrick has always been about computers & networks - but has mostly
  17. been about people :-) This should be a celebration for the entire
  18. Redbrick community - for the founders who made the society, the
  19. associates who grew it, the committees who help steer it through the
  20. years, the staff & sponsors who have been important to keep the society
  21. alive, the current members & users who make it what it is today. That\'s
  22. a lot of people, huh? With everyone on board and doing their best to
  23. fill in the \"Redbrick history jigsaw\", think how cool it\'s going to
  24. be!
  25. Nothing below is set in stone. Please add away! (And don\'t get offended
  26. by an idea you don\'t like!)
