Joe Fiorini and my friend Kevin in NC both have mentioned this event to me, so I figured I’d talk about here.

The goal of this event is to promote free software, showing people the benefits behind using free software, giving people the opportunity to network with others who are in the free software community, and celebrating free software.

Ooh, new buzz word — “free software”!

No, that’s not it. The concept of free software has been around for quite a long time. Check out the Free Software Foundation’s explanation of “free software”.

I’m already into the free software movement…

Then make it a point to be there! If you’re as passionate as most people who develop in the free software arena, volunteer to speak at the event.
