As you all know Software Freedom Day 2009 is due to take place on
Saturday, 19th September at the University of Manchester
and many of you have already expressed a keen interest in attending
and participating.

Now that we are less then two weeks away, it is time to finalise these
arrangements and get your name on the SFD team wiki

For those of you who are interested in participating but are unsure
how, here are a few suggestions:-

  * Demonstrate your favourite piece of Free Software
      - Firefox, OpenOffice, GIMP, Pidgin, Frozen Bubble...
  * Conduct a beginner-friendly workshop
      - How to install Ubuntu/gNewSense in 7 easy steps.
  * Give a short talk/presentation
      - Introduction to Free Software.
  * Offer technical advice
      - “Do do I?”...
  * [Wo]Man a stall
      - Giveaways, books, merchandise, refreshments.
  * Report on the event
      - Attend, take pictures and write an article/blog post.
  * Be a shepherd.
      - Meet, greet and usher people in.

If you can't attend on the day but would still like to help, then why not:-

  * Burn some Free Software CD-ROMS
      - Ubuntu, Debian, gNewSense, OpenDisc and OpenEducationDisc are
all good examples.
  * Promote the event
      - Among friends and family, put up some posters or do some flyering.
  * Lend us some demonstration equipment
      - Computers and gadgetry running Free Software will always be useful.

All contributions are welcome so please feel free to post them to the
list <address@hidden>.

Many thanks and best wishes,
The MFS Team.
