Software freedom day 2004

...Well it's over...can't wait until next year!
This project was created to promote free and open source software on Saturday August 28th in over 30 nations worldwide.
The Melbourne team was:
Andrew Chalmers
Grant Diffey

500(ish) SFD packs were distributed in the Melbourne CBD in under two hours.
Yes people actually wanted them...we kicked ass.
Big thanks to everyone that was involved & to all those that were missed out on a great and really, really fun day. Anyone that wants a pack can see me at the next LUV meeting. We saved 7 ;) 2004 Regional Delegate Program
