I found out about Software Freedom Day event in Cleveland through endhunham. The actual “Software Freedom Day” for this year (SFD08) was September 20th, but appearantely the events took place through September (and some in October) all around the world.
The event in Cleveland took place this Monday, so I drove down see what it’s all about.
The topics I personally found most interesting were “How to Bring FOSS to the Mainstream” (Adam Siemienski) and “Business Implications and Users of Free and Open Source Software” (Panel Discussion).
The map on official event site shows there is a pin suggesting a group in Michigan (not much more info…). Next year, I hope to hear more about this event in Michigan as well!
