[LUG] Software Freedom Day (SFD) in the UK


Hi folks,

I've just picked this up from the Free Software Manchester mailing list...

I've replied to the Free Software Manchester list to say that we're hoping to have an event in Paignton this year all being well (this is something we really need to get cracking on!). I'm not sure if we'll be able to get any assistance from the Federation of Free Software UK but if it's okay with everyone I'll drop them an e-mail explaining that we're looking at doing an event.



Having announced the "Federation of Free Software UK" (FFSUK)
<http://www.ffsuk.org.uk/>, I now announce our first project, "Software
Freedom Day (SFD) in the UK" <http://ffsuk.org.uk/sfd/>:

Software Freedom Day (SFD) in the UK

Software Freedom Day (SFD) is an excellent annual opportunity to promote
the Free Software philosophy. SFD is not widely know about in the UK,
even among Free Software advocates! This needs to change. FFSUK is
pushing to get events in all areas of the UK and to assist events in
Current likely SFD2010 event locations in the UK:

    * Dundee
    * Edinburgh
    * Manchester - 2010/Europe/United Kingdom/Manchester
    * Herefordshire
    * Bracknell

If there are any locations in the UK that are going to run a SFD2010
event then please let us know at iwanttohelp at ffsuk dot org dot uk.

Currently, the only location on the new SFD2010 wiki UK area is Manchester.
FFSUK will focus on helping to start events in the following areas:

    * Northern Ireland
    * North East England
    * East of England
    * South West England
    * London

If you would like to help with starting an SFD2010 event in these areas
then please contact us at iwanttohelp at ffsuk dot org dot uk.
