Das nächste reguläre Fellowshiptreffen in Düsseldorf findet im Chaosdorf, Hüttenstr. 25, 40215 Düsseldorf statt, offizieller Beginn um 20:00 Uhr. "Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est." (deutsch: "Denn jede Sache, die durch Mitteilung an andere nicht verliert, besitzt man nicht, wie man soll, solange man sie nur selber besitzt, ohne sie wieder an andere weiterzugeben.") ist ein Motto der FSFE aus ihrer frühen Zeit. Diese Erkenntnis ist jedoch etwa 1600 Jahre alt. Ralf Peter Reimann, Diplom-Informatiker und Pastor, wird uns in seinem Vortrag Sinn und Inhalt dieses Satzes erläutern und auch seinen Urheber vorstellen. Gäste sind wie immer herzlich willkommen.
