Saturday declared 'Software Freedom Day'
Advocates of free and open-source software have designated Saturday as Software Freedom Day and are planning events around the world to educate the public about the benefits and availability of open-source software.Indeed. Maybe you should go after someone a little more challenging. Just a thought.

The nonprofit company Software Freedom International is driving the effort, but the event depends largely on the grassroots activities of free software advocates organizing small events at the local level.
A team of four people in Nashua, New Hampshire, for example, said they will most likely be in the Nashua Public Library talking up free software to people attending a book fair organized for the same day.
"The type of person to spend Saturday at the library is exactly the type of person who would care about and be interested in Free Software!" the team wrote on the Free Software Day Web site.
