Everyone is invited to attend this event and meet some of the GIMP Magazine team members, ask questions, and provide suggestions for upcoming issues! The event will be LIVE to the world. The GIMP Magazine team and the Dyscultured crew will also be in the chat, powered by none other than the open source Mibbit and IRC. Yeah, the Dyscultured crew is all about the Creative Commons, open source, and all that! So please attend and have some fun with a bunch of Canadians eh!"
