Día del Software Libre 08

Monday, September 8th, 2008

Around this time of the year the Sofware Freedom Day is celebrated this year the Saturday 20 of September and well that’s a pretty bad date for us in Chile since we celebrate our Fiestas Patrias  (aka 18) so this year in Chile at least the Sofware Freedom day is going to be hold the Saturday 27 of September, I was invited to the lovely city of Curicó i have a bunch of friends in that city and i was there last year also for the same event, Curicó isn’t too far away from Santiago just an hour and a half in train so my friend if you’re planning to go from Santiago to there, drop me an email so we can travel together :-)
