A look back at our history


Boston Linux & UNIX was founded in 1994, originally as a Special
Interest Group (SIG) of The Boston Computer Society (BCS). When the BCS
dissolved itself in 1996, our group's volunteer team chose to continue
as an independent user group. This is also a good time for beginners to
ask some questions.

We celebrate our 25th anniversary this month with pizza and cake, and a
retrospective look at our group's history.

On-Campus Free Parking (These parking lots are free after 5pm)

The Amherst Street/E51 parking lot is the best parking option. It
probably will have plenty of spaces. During the school year the lot
tends to be full, but tends to clear out after 6:30 or 7PM.

Due to the never-ending construction, Sloan's Hermann Garage is only
accessible via Main Street. It is a small garage without a gate, and
directly under the Sloan library.

All other MIT lots require permits after hours.

The closest public parking
is Kendall Center Green Garage, next to the Marriott Hotel. The entrance is
90 Broadway Street. For other parking options, see

All Cambridge parking meters use Passport by Phone:
This is active on all Cambridge metered parking spaces. Meters are free
after 8PM
