So, as many of you know, I'm here in Central Illinois, and as many of you also 
know, I'm a Free Software fanatic.  I love my freedom, and I love my 
software.  When you put the two together it just gives me happy feelings.

It is for these reasons that I am wanting to have a little bit of Software 
Freedom activity here in Champaign-Urbana on the 15th of September.

For this event, I'd like to do three things:
1) Hand out flyers and Free Software discs on the UIUC campus (preferably 
branded ones)

2) I'd like to see if we could get someone to give a talk on Freedom in 
Software somewhere on the UIUC campus.

3) I'd like to have an all-inclusive Free Software celebration at a TBA 

Some of these events may cost money, so if we get enough interest I'd like to 
find someone who can help me plan, and help me budget, so we can try to see 
if we can raise funds for the festivities.  I think system76 would be 
interested in partnering with us for this, so I'll ping their people and ask 
them what's up with that.

ALSO, there will be an Illibuntu some time in October at the new--and vastly 
improved--manchicken house of hack in Mahomet, IL, so stay tuned for that.

For those of you who have been wondering, no, manchicken isn't dead.  He's 
just buying a house, becoming a daddy, and holding down a full-time job.
