Software Freedom Day 2008

An event to mark the Software Freedom Day was organized by the Free Software Foundation and held in Boston over the weekend. I felt that a long drive was just what I needed to get my mind off the series of mini catastrophes that have been taking place at work during the week.

By the time I reached Chinatown, it was mid-day on Saturday and the event was nearly over. Helped myself to some GNU memorabilia, and briefly spoke with Mako before being distracted by Stallman’s voice singing the Free Software song.

GNU celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and a small 5-minute short of Stephen Fry endorsing Free Software was screened. Happy birthday GNU, and many more!
