Subject: [Debian-NYC] OT: Software Freedom Day

Hello all and please excuse the off-topic post. On September 20th, the
Software Freedom Law Center is celebrating Software Freedom Day and we'd
like to invite the Debian community to attend and help us celebrate
software freedom and 25 years of GNU greatness. The invite is below.
Feel free to pass it on to interested parties.

Best regards,
James Vasile, Software Freedom Law Center

The Software Freedom Law Center cordially invites you to the 2008 NYC
Software Freedom Day Reception! Industry leaders, lawyers, advocates
and hackers alike will be gathering to commemorate and celebrate the
state of the movement; from the inception of the GNU Project 25 years
ago to the present day, the lives of millions of people all around the
world have been forever changed by software freedom.

More information about Software Freedom Day can be found at


When: Saturday, Sept. 20th from 6pm to 9pm.

Where: Limewire is hosting us in their rooftop garden at 377 Broadway,
between White St. and Franklin St. It's just a few blocks south of
Canal.

Activities will include guest speakers from around the movement, as
well as music and a raffle, with a focus on mixing, meeting, and
greeting. The reception is a rooftop affair, providing ample time and
space to celebrate, meet new people and reconnect with old friends.
