Software Freedom Day

On September 15, more than 330 teams around the world held Software Freedom Day events as part of a global, grassroots effort to educate the public about the importance of software freedom and the virtues and availability of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).

This short video includes highlights from the SFD event held in Chapel Hill, NC, including Max Spevack’s Fedora talk and Mark Finkle from Mozilla.
