There's a TeX Hour tomorrow evening (Thursday 1 April) 6:30 to 7:30pm UK
time. We are privileged to have Jana Schroeder as a special guest. In
other news, within a few hours videos from past TeX Hours will be up on
YouTube (all the way up to last week). URLs are below.

Last month Jana organised a who-are-we and what-do-we-want and
how-to-get-there meeting which was attended by over 20 blind coders. Jana

Coders Blazing Trails.
