and be a guest blogger, please let me know.  I'll be reaching out to folks

* Updating tags and categories for Zeek Blog posts: When we switched to the

make sure when people search for various Zeek related topics we want to

who volunteered, we're getting everything ready to give you access and plan
out the tasks.

***THANK YOU*** so much to all those who attend each month.

Please invite others and let me know if there are topics you'd like to see
discussed on these calls.

As a reminder: These calls are not for Zeek Technical/Development
discussions, but for how we can all come together to make the community
stronger and build awareness around The Zeek Project.   If you have ideas
or would like to get more involved please let me know.

With gratitude,
