This is an old revision of the document!
It's fairly common for some books/publications, etc. to be made available at BALUG and other User Group meetings.
These below are currently (subject to availability and/or request) brought by Michael Paoli and/or others to

Berkeley Unix User Group (BUUG),
Bay Area Debian (BAD),
Berkeley Linux Users Group,
Ubuntu Hour (San Francisco & Berkeley),
