[vox] [fwd] Software Freedom Day: August 28, 2004

Here's some info on "Software Freedom Day"...

It's quite a ways from now, but would be a perfect day for a Linux Demo
in the community!  (It's the 4th Saturday in August).

We are writing to ask you and your LUG to join us in celebrating Software
Freedom Day in 2004 and beyond. Please consider posting this to your mailing
list.  Thank you.

In an effort to step up the marketing effort for Free and Open Source 
Software (FOSS), a small group of us have formed softwarefreedomday.org 
with the aim of organizing a global celebration of FOSS on August 28th 
this year. We will be handing out printed materials and CDs with good 
quality FOSS, like TheOpenCD and Knoppix. We hope to involve a large 
number of teams, comprised of LUG members and other enthusiasts all 
around the world. Our role will be to help coordinate the event and 
provide the required infrastructure, including a web portal, posters and 
fliers, and most importantly, high quality (pressed) CDs that local 
teams can give out to the general public on Software Freedom Day.

We hope that you will be able to join us in organizing local events in 
your area and in developing these ideas further in the months to come. 
August may seem a long way off, but we have lots of work to do before
then. Please stop by our website, softwarefreedomday.org, for more 
information and to share your ideas. If you would like to launch a team 
in your area, please place a note in our forum, so that others can find 
you and join up.

Best wishes,

        Matt Oquist & The SFD Team
