We all knew these days would come. The Last HOPE is the seventh
Hackers On Planet Earth conference. Join the rest of the hacker
community from around the world July 18 to July 20, 2008 for this
momentous occasion at the historic Hotel Pennsylvania in New York

There will be three days and nights of speakers along with all
sorts of activities to keep you entertained and enlightened. We
have a tremendous amount of space for us to make use of and it's
all right in the middle of the city, across the street from Penn
Station. You still have time to get involved in this historic
event, whether by attending, volunteering, speaking, or creating
something new that none of us have thought of yet.

The Last HOPE. If you miss this one, there's nothing left to say.

In lieu of donations, flowers are requested.

Subject: [FSF] Need volunteers in New York City, 7/18 - 7/20


The Free Software Foundation is going to have a table at an upcoming event
in New York City. I'm writing because we need your help from July 18th
through July 20th to help run the table.

Talking to folks at conferences is a great way to help spread the word
about free software and a great way to help us increase our membership
base. And, as it turns out, it's also fun!

The tabling hours are from 08:30 to 17:30. The conference takes place at
Hotel Pennsylvania at 33rd Street and 7th Avenue in New York City.

We'll need 1-2 people for each of the following "shifts" so if you want
to, you can table with a friend. Let me know when you'd most like to help
out and whether you have any flexibility:

* 08:30 - 11:30
* 11:30 - 14:30
* 14:30 - 17:30

I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if you have any

Many thanks,
Jeanne Rasata
Free Software Foundation
