Software Freedom Day [2/3]

Saturday, September 16th, 2006 at 4:15 pm

Apparently today is Software Freedom Day so after I picked up my latest acquisition I parked at Clifton Hill Station and made my way to the Melbourne Town Hall to check out the bazaar which had a melbourne.pm representation.

I was only there for an hour and a half but I:

  • listened to Jon Oxer, Mark Gray, and Steve Middleton talk about combating the 20 billion dollar ICT trade defecit with FOSS, some pragmatic examples for small businesses and how FOSS enables a free media.
  • Found out about BarCampMelbourne that is happening in March next year. I shall keep my eye on this one.
  • Briefly caught up with some people I know through melbourne.pm.

There weren’t that many people there but I hope it picked up later in the afternoon.
