Event: Software Freedom Day Sept 17th 2011

Software Freedom Day is an annual, worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). The goal is to educate the public in the benefits of using high quality free software in education, in government, at home, and in business.

Software Freedom Underpins our Human Rights
In a time when our lives are increasingly dependent on technologies, it is important we take the time to consider the impact of technology on our lives and the importance of ensuring technology isn't used to limit us, but rather to take us further along a path of opportunity, innovation and freedom for all people. 

Software Freedom Day is everywhere!
SFD is a yearly celebration with thousands of teams organizing Software Freedom Day in many cities in many countries to promote, educate and distribute free software.
