Software Freedom Day in September

I’d love to hear if any libraries are planning a Software Freedom Day event on September 20th, 2008.

Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about of the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business — in short, everywhere! The non-profit company Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities.

If you didn’t know about the day and want to host an event at your library – check out the official page and register your event.
