Software Freedom Day

Worth noting as a date for your diary: September 10th 2005 is worldwide Software Freedom Day.
Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a global grassroots effort to promote public awareness and use of Free and Open Source Software. Over 70 teams joined the celebration in 2004, organising a range of events at schools, universities and public places.”
The SFD teams are again inviting you to participate by forming local teams and planning local events. They have also offered to provide logistical support including on-line facilities and physical materials such as copies of TheOpenCD. (A new version of which was released very recently).

If you want to participate in SFD locally, check the list of teams in the UK to see if there is one near you that you can join. Alternatively set up your own team here.

If you’re unfamiliar with the merits of Free and Open Source Software you can learn more about its benefits in this previous post.
