FLISOL 2007 Update

Last Saturday the whole Latin América celebrated the FLISOL 2007 in my city it was held in the DIINF USACH, it was cool, lot of people and a lovely ambient our stand was almost all the time with guys asking things or just seeing what GNOME can do for them, we made a bunch of stickers for giving away to all who want it and also our stand had a PC where the people can did common tasks like reading emails, news through the net, chatting, etc.

GNOME stand

our stand

A lot of people asked me if we had GNOME t-shirts to give, i only can say to them “i’m sorry…” cause all the t-shirts (GUADEC’s ones) we had, we gave them last year during the GNOME Day event and sadly we don’t have enough money for print, anyways i promised them t-shirts for this year but not before GUADEC, so I’m now just crossing my fingers and hoping the GUADEC committee this year can give us a couple just like last year.

GNOME stand

Felipe stayed almost all the day at the stand helping people.

There were also more communities like Ubuntu and Fedora both of them have stands and help people to install his favorite distribution. You can see the stands here and here.

Thanks a lot to the organizers for invited us and for made this event one of the best FLISOL’s ever.

there's something better?

also you can get free coffee served by cute girls, tasty.

I’m gonna try to put all the photos i can (sorry i don’t have a pro account) of that day in this flickr set.


This Saturday 28th the whole Latin America will celebrate the FLISOL 2007, I’m gonna go to the one in my City (Santiago), the event will be held in the Departamento de Ingeniería Informática de la Universidad de Santiago de Chile, we are going to have a booth there for demo’ing our lovely GNOME 2.18, help people to install it in their computers and I’m also giving a talk at 15:00 or so.

If you remember one
of my last posts
related to the infraction of the Creative Commons license, well the company and particulary the design guys who used the punk bear image respond very quickly to the letter from
the ONG of Digital Rights and they removed the image from the website and payed some money to Armando Torrealba. This is a great news for all the community of creators, since it shows the effectiveness of these licenses in our Country.

My congrats to the guys from the ONG
Digitals Rights
for their help on Armando’s problem and a big thanks to Rodrigo Valenzuela from ONG Digitals Rights for sending me this awesome news. If you are wondering what Armando is going to do with the money… well he is going to use it for help to build a telecentre in a school in Chillán, he deserves at least an applause.

Rodrigo has sent me this screenshot in case you wanna see the website where they used the design.
