[I know Peng usually posts the announcement about this, but I saw the email message and shot off a quick IM message to him about it. He said I should post it since he's not able to guarantee his being able to write a post today, and he did say to use the Ubuntu category to make sure it gets out to the Ubuntu Weblogs. -Nanci, Peng's sister]
SFD is a celebration of Free and Open Source Software, but it definitely isn’t about bashing Microsoft, SCO, or any other commercial/proprietary software organizations. Instead it’s a way to look at all the wonderful FOSS options that are available and helping others know about them.
There’s a map on the SFD site to help you find a team in your area. If there’s no team in your area you can start one yourself, or at the very least join 4freedom for the celebration in SecondLife. I’m going to try to make plans to either join the folks in the Boston area (I hear the Mass. Ubuntu LoCo is looking to do something, even if it’s with another group, in the Boston area) or get into SL to join the festivities with 4freedom.
