Tomorrow I’ll be gearing up for Software Freedom Day here in my hometown, along with a bunch of dedicated friends from FredLUG.
We’re going to have balloons, a free raffle for some swank gear, and stickers, temporary tattoos and CDs and DVDs of Fedora. We’ll also have bunched of copies of the OpenCD, which is chock full of free and open source software for people who aren’t quite ready to make the jump away from proprietary operating systems, even with an alternative as cool and easy to use as Fedora.
Last night I was interviewed for the regional newspaper so I’m really looking forward to seeing how that came out. The writer’s a nice guy who’s done us a solid before, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to get in front of tens of thousands of readers. It would have been nice to be in the paper today but I still think it will haves major positive effect on our visitor numbers at the event.
And the weather is supposed to be beautiful… So I’m ready to do some free software promotion!
