* Malcolm Herbert, Introduction to GNU Screen
Malcolm has been hacking and playing with a range of Unix systems of different flavours since 1991 in a variety of environments. Over time he's encountered tools that manage to get the job done with a minimum of fuss and have incorporated these into the set that he use on a daily basis; screen is one such tool and is sometimes referred to as the Swiss Army chainsaw of the Unix world.
In a nutshell, screen is a terminal multiplexing tool. Rather than run multiple individual terminals on your local host (ie, PuTTY windows, Konsole tabs) for various tasks, screen allows a single local window to manage multiple instances of shells on the remote host. Configuration options allow maintenance of remote session state despite network interruption; multiple active heads; session logging; cut and paste; plus many others.

I thought I'd post a few links that I've found useful while looking into this topic, in case anyone else wants to do some light reading before the meet-up.

Slashdot: Netflix Using HTML5 Video For ARM Chromebook http://slashdot.org/story/13/03/11/2155219/netflix-using-html5-video-for-arm-chromebook
"Recently Google enabled the much controversial DRM support for HTML5 in Chrome OS to bring services like Netflix to Chromebooks using HTML5." The technology is already in use and is being heavily pushed by Google and Netflix (obviously) as well as apparently Apple and Microsoft. We need to ensure Mozilla does not cave (as they did with H.264).
