Celebrate 30 Years of GNU this Weekend
This celebration and hackathon is being organized by GNU and the FSF. I'm announcing it on our meetup page because I think many of you would enjoy participating and it would be wonderful to see you there. Sorry for the late notice if this is the first you're hearing of the event.

Thank You Software Freedom Day Attendees
A warm thank you to everyone who attended Software Freedom Day last weekend. I think we had some great speakers, but it was the audience participation and interaction that made the day. I'm in the process of gathering presentation material and slides, which will be posted at the link below.
