The Dallas Makerspace is hosting Software Freedom Day.
This Saturday 18th from 1 to 6 PM.

I am a new member of the Dallas Makerspace and while I am going to do a short presentation (don't hold that against them) I know several of the other presenters and this is going to be a very cool and quality afternoon. Kid friendly too!

You can also check out the new space DEDICATED to building, hacking and generally dreaming up the future. Recommended!

If you write free software, use free software, or want to learn
about software freedom, come join us for Software Freedom Day.
We have free swag (free as in free beer) from the Free Software
Foundation, Redhat, and Canonical. That means we'll have Redhat
Fedora GNU/Linux CDs, Ubuntu GNU/Linux CDs, free software
stickers, GPL stickers, anti-DRM (digital restrictions
management) stickers, FSF newsletters, and more. We're planning
short talks about wide range of free software related topics.
We're working on talks about Arduino, Robotics, Blender, Server
Management, Perl and more.

Want to free your computer? Bring a computer that has a blank
or ready to wipe hard drive! We'll have experts on hand who can
help you install GNU/Linux on your computer with a choice of
the latest versions of either Fedora or Ubunutu.

If you have any ideas or want to join us, get in touch!
