Registrations are now open for Software Freedom Day, which will be held on 20 September 2008.
So, what is Software Freedom Day (from the website);
Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about of the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business — in short, everywhere! The non-profit company Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities.
Not sure on details for the Melbourne event, when more is known I will post further.
