The 5th annual Software Freedom Day NYC will take place on Saturday
September 15, 2012 from 7-10 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 and a short program of
speakers. This is also a "hack friendly" event; we have 2 large
breakout rooms so bring your laptop to demonstrate a project you're
working on or engage in informal collaboration.

At 8:30 pm there will be a short program including presentations.
Tentatively scheduled are:

Freedom Box -- presented by James Vasille of the Software Freedom Law Center
"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)
Occupy <3s Open Source -- presented by TechOps of the NYCGA (NYC
General Assembly)

as well as short talks on leading free software projects and distributions.

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