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
- 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
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.

Subject: [isoc-ny] Software Freedom Day & Wikipedia takes Manhattan next
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
