| Thursday, September 11th, 2008 -- It's Saturday and a roomful of people are
| advising each other on modifying their mobile devices, optimizing their
| GNU/Linux systems and organizing for software freedom. But it's not a room
| full of experts -- at least not mostly. Artists, activists, students and
| others want the freedom to do anything they want with their computers and
| they're here to learn new tricks and garner shortcuts from each other.
