Open Source Textbook Session at the Joint Meetings

I certainly have not been active with this blog the past couple of months.  I guess other things just go in the way and I let it slide.  The only reason for this post is to inform those that are attending the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore, that I will be give a presentation at the contributed papers session on Open Source Textbooks in Mathematics.  My session will be on Friday January 17 at 10:00 am.  I do not know the location yet.

For those interested in open source textbooks, this should be an interesting session.  The complete list of presentations is:
