Ciao a tutti,

Vi forwardo una mail che annuncia il giorno internazionale del software
libero, il 10 settembre. Si possono organizzare tante iniziative per
promuovere il software libero, aiutare i gruppi italiani
oppure crearne altri!

Per chi avesse domande sull'iniziativa potete vedere il sito
http://softwarefreedomday.org/ oppure chiedere qui in lista!

grazie, e buon divertimento,

> Hello LoCo Teams and other Ubuntu fans,
> September 10th is international Software Freedom Day [1], which is a 
> global celebration of free and open source software (FOSS). Ubuntu 
> already plays a central role in the event in that the official CD 
> distributed by teams around the world (TheOpenCD v3) contains a Live CD 
> based on Hoary [2]. Canonical has sponsored the SFD server and 
> production of the CDs. Various Ubuntu team members are also directly 
> involved in the event. Mako and I are on the governing board of SFD and 
> Jeff is involved in organising Australian teams.
> Community support is vital in developing a superb OS (testing, 
> documentation, MOTUs, etc.), but development is only half the job. To 
> encourage people to use free OSes such as Ubuntu and its derivatives, we 
> must also engage in promotion. In theory it should be an easy sell: we 
> have a great system that we are giving away for free! However, the 
> marketing resources spent on promoting proprietary systems are vast and 
> will only increase with the pre-hype around Vista.
> We have the opportunity of using a distributed marketing model though, 
> and directly engaging people. I'm sure all of you are already spreading 
> the word amongst friends, but it is also possible to reach larger groups 
> of local people through organised events. SFD is a nice opportunity for 
> LoCo teams to join with other FOSS advocates and create some real 
> momentum on a specific day. It is conceived of as a broad initiative of 
> free and open source software advocates, reaching across distributions, 
> projects, operating systems and continents! We have teams registered in 
> places like Nepal, Burundi, Peru and Bangladesh, in addition to the more 
> traditionally high tech regions of Europe and North America.
> Many teams already have plans well under way, so if there is one in your 
> area, you might want to hook up with them to see how you can help. If 
> not, you can easily start a team in your area any time. Check the SFD 
> forum and wiki for existing teams [3]. We've had over 200 team 
> registrations so far and we are sure that at least 100 of these will 
> stage outreach events on the day. I'm sure many of you will have ordered 
> and received official Ubuntu CDs already. If you still have some left on 
> Sept. 10th you might want to meet up with a local team and hand them 
> out  :)
