Subject: [androidnyc] Software Freedom Day - this Saturday at ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program)

The 5th annual Software Freedom Day NYC will take place on Saturday September 15, 2012 from 6:30-10:00 pm. 

The New York celebratory event will be held this year at ITP, NYU's school for the Interactive Telecommunications Program, located at 721 Broadway (between 8th Street & Washington Place.) 

 As in previous years this will be a celebration of the merits and successes of free software, with food & drinks ("free as in beer!") and a short program of speakers. This is also a "hack friendly" event; we will have 2 large breakout rooms so bring your laptop to demonstrate a project you're working on or engage in informal collaboration. 

At 8:00 pm there will be a short program including presentations.  Scheduled speakers include: 

James Vasile of the Software Freedom Law Center on "Free Software vs Censorship and Surveillance"
"Wikipedia Takes Manhattan” -- presented by Wikimedia NYC (following up on this afternoon’s photo-walk departing Bowling Green at 3pm, and arriving at ITP at 7pm)
Jon Stanley on the Fedora project
Occupy <3s Open Source -- presented by TechOps of the NYCGA (NYC General Assembly)

& others as well as short talks on other free software projects and distributions. 

After this program there will be a reception, including a key signing.
