Software Freedom Day 2008 is coming up on September 20. You can register your event on the Software Freedom Day site and see a cool interactive map of worldwide events.

What is Software Freedom Day? According to 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.

If you're in the Wellington area, Brenda Wallace invites you to register for the Hackfest. Pizza and beer will be provided as things wrap up, but it's BYOL (bring your own laptop).
