 Subject: [nylug-talk] Software Freedom Day - This Saturday at ITP (Interactive 
Telecommunications Program)

 The 5th annual Software Freedom Day
 NYC<http://cfsg.org/Software-Freedom-Day-2012>will take place on
 Saturday September 15, 2012 from 6:30-10:00 pm.

 The New York celebratory event will be held this year at ITP, NYU's school
 for the Interactive Telecommunications Program, located at 721 Broadway
 (between 8th Street & Washington Place.)

    As in previous years this will be a celebration of the merits and
    successes of free software, with food & drinks and a short program of
    speakers. This is also a "hack friendly" event; we will have 2 large
    breakout rooms so bring your laptop to demonstrate a project you're working
    on or engage in informal collaboration.

 At 8:00 pm there will be a short program including presentations. Scheduled
 speakers include:

    - James Vasile of the Software Freedom Law Center on "Free Software vs
    Censorship and Surveillance"
    - "Wikipedia Takes Manhattan=94 -- presented by Wikimedia NYC (following
    up on this afternoon=92s photo-walk departing Bowling Green at 3pm, and
    arriving at ITP at 7pm)
    - Jon Stanley on the Fedora project
    - Occupy <3s Open Source -- presented by
    TechOps<http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/TechOps> of
    the NYCGA (NYC General Assembly)

 as well as short talks on other free software projects and distributions.

 After this program there will be a reception, including a key signing.

 They say it never rains but it pours, but Sun is forecast for next Saturday
 when a plethora of events overtake NYC including Wikimedia NYC's 4th Annual
 walk and shoot. Not mentioned below is that that same day there will also
 be an Occupy Town Square in Washington Square from 11am-7pm  with lots of
 diversions. Don't worry - the police riot is not scheduled until Monday..
  And one of Occupy's best will present at the Software Freedom shindig so
 even if you can't make the town square you can still get in on the 99%
 action! - joly
