I have blasted the Debian Day announcement to over 12 lists and well,
there are only 28 folks who have registered. I need your help in
spreading the word.... Information below. Please pass on to friends,
colleagues, and any lists that make sense to do so.


August 1, 2010
Free but registration required

Debian Day will take place from 10 AM to 6:40 PM on Sunday, August 1,
2010 at Columbia University, New York City, New York.

After ten editions in nine different countries spanning four continents,
and for the first time in the United States, the Debian project is
holding their annual Debian Developer conference, DebConf, at Columbia
University in New York City. DebConf includes Debian Day, when it opens
its doors to the general public. Debian Day kicks off DebConf, is free
of charge, and open for everybody interested in Free Software. During
this event, there will be a full day of talks on several subjects such
as free software in government, design and free software, free software
advocacy as well as string of talks about the Debian project and
operating system.

The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common
cause to create a free and open operating system. This operating system
that we have been creating is called Debian GNU/Linux, or simply Debian
for short. Every year, DebConf allows new and existing Debian project
participants from around the world to assemble, share knowledge and
ideas, make collaborative contributions to Debian, build tighter
community bonds and improve communication within the project.

We would love to see you join us at Debian Day. Registration is required
but is free.

To register, please send an email with intent to attend to:
debianday@debconf.org If you are registered for DebConf, you do not need
to register for Debian Day.
