SFD '09 Registration is now Open

Hi SFD'ers,

The season is open on registering for Software Freedom Day, which is happening this year on 19 September 2009. Check on our map [1] to see if a team is registered near you - otherwise get yours together and register [2]! (Don't forget that you need to make your team wiki page on http://softwarefreedomday.org/teams before registering)

The first 200 teams registered before Friday 10 July will receive an SFD team pack including three SFD 2009 T-shirts, Ubuntu CDs, and a few other bits and pieces to support your day - we'll keep you posted on what's going into the pack. As usual, these packs are sent to teams all over the world with support from our sponsors: Canonical (the folks who bring you Ubuntu), Google and DKUUG (with additional help from Linode, Zac-ware, Linux Magazine and FSF).
If you haven't taken part before, learn how to run a new event from our easy to read StartGuide [3] - and if you have any questions, just email info@sf-day.org.

Good luck with your SFD 2009 preparations, and don't forget to pass the message around and get more teams involved. We had over 550 teams last year and are anticipating over 700 this year!

Thank you for connecting, creating and sharing!

President, Software Freedom International
