Deb over at the FSF requested that I forward this along - it's in
Boston but she thought some PA folks would be interested could make
the trek up as well.

LibrePlanet Free Software Conference: Free as in Freedom!
Register now for LibrePlanet at
The annual free software conference LibrePlanet is the place for the
free software community -- from old school hackers to brand new users --
to come together and further the collective goals of the free software
movement. At LibrePlanet you can help your neighbor get a head-start in
free software or explore the very latest philosophical ideas that will
shape computing and user freedom for the next generation.
LibrePlanet 2010 will feature workshops on the most widely used free
software tools for working with the web, video, graphics and software
development. You can learn about the latest developments in the GNU
Project, free network services, digital radio, voice-over-IP,
encryption, software licensing, media formats, and view the premiere of
a new film on software patents. Plus at this year's LibrePlanet we'll be
discussing how you can successfully engage with free software
communities, mentor free software projects, and how non-coders can take
up important roles in free software projects.
This year's keynote speeches are from the founder of the free software
movement Richard Stallman and Electronic Frontier Foundation's founder
With the increased threats to user freedom and autonomy from proprietary
software, this is a must-attend event for anyone who values free speech
and privacy in the electronic era.
LibrePlanet 2010 -- March 19th, 20th and 21st at the Harvard Science
Center, Cambridge, MA.
