Excitement building for LibrePlanet! Sign up before it fills up!

Register now!

Hi ,

It's only a month before LibrePlanet 2013: "Commit Change" and the campaigns team is in a flurry of activity, putting the finishing touches on the conference plans. People are registering quickly and it's great to see how much everyone is looking forward to the conference.

Want to be part of LibrePlanet 2013? It's March 23-24 at Harvard University. Register now. Remember, it's gratis for FSF members and discounted for students.

Since our last email, the program has grown a lot, now including:

  • Leslie Hawthorn, community manager at Red Hat
  • Upstream University, a seminar where developers will learn to contribute more successfully and efficiently to free software. (This requires separate registration. Space is limited!).
  • An exhibit hall of free software organizations and companies
  • Rubén Rodriguez from Trisquel, the FSF-endorsed fully free GNU/Linux distribution

And of course Richard Stallman and Karen Sandler (executive director of GNOME) will still be there to anchor the conference.

One more thing: only people who register before March 6th will be able to order a LibrePlanet 2013: Commit Change t-shirt. These shirts are a great way to show off your love of free software during the conference and start conversations afterwards. So if you want to represent LibrePlanet with a spiffy t-shirt, don't wait to sign up.

Hope to see you at the conference! If you're going and would like to connect with other attendees, check out the #libreplanet IRC channel on
