This looks really interesting. I'm glad that Ubuntu is co-sponsoring it.

I'd be really interested in getting involved with something like this. I'm 
also a (rather inactive) fellow of the FSFE, so might be able to link up with 
them somehow.

But yeah, if it's to be a "real life event" based thing, then local action 
rather than anything national might be a wiser choice.

I have no experience of what this kind of event might look like, but would be 
keen to help out.

I'm based around a university, so it's a shame from my point of view that the 
thing falls just before the start of the new term.

Sounds interesting!
