Hi all,

Software Freedom Day is 3rd Saturday of every Semptembers, which is
established by Software Freedom International.

Thank you for your support in last year, and we made a successful SFD
last year with over 100 participants.

18 September 2010 is next SFD. Although offical team registration is
not yet announced by SFI, I still would like to call for discussion on
sfdhk google group.

- Style of Software Freedom Day this year ?
- Any topics you would like to share / listen / discuss / demo /
introduce in software freedom day ?
- Are you willing to be a volunteer of software freedom day ?
- Are you willing to sponsor software freedom day ? Venue, Wifi,
Gifts, Food & Beverage, Tee,...
- Any other suggestions, comments ?

Last year SFDHK was a week behind barcamphk. And bencrox replied me
that barcamphk this year will be held again in September. We should
consider barcamphk in our planning.

BTW, shall I recommend someone on sharing things (although I haven't
asked him yet... he's a firefox developer in HK anyway, or I don't
know if you know him already)

Thanks, Steven.

It will be great if you can share something at SFD too.

Let me ask him... shall I just ask him to join this group?

Thanks for your offer indeed. Although you might already know what I
am interested to talk about, I would still like to know what kinds of
topics are good for SFD. Also, how long is a talk? I read the Wiki
that some of them are 30min and some of them are 1hr.

And of course, I always recommend people using open-source tools (as
well as simplest tools) whenever possible (almost always possible
indeed) in my working domain :)

Information on wiki.opensource.hk is SFD last year, we didn't decide length of each talks.

Steven,

Great to hear that :)

For me, I would like to make the range of topic of SFD broader than
last year. Ofocz , it is always encouraged to focus on OSS / software
freedom, but it should not be limited to OSS only. Topics that related
to web 2.0 , software development , life and technology , local
community , and not too commercial should be welcomed.
