This is just a reminder to kick your Software Freedom Day preparations
up a notch - and to make sure that we here at SFD Central hear about it
so that we can give away glittering prizes!
For individual competitors we've got a bunch of SFD T-shirts with
Officially Cool Peoples' signatures on it, including everyone's
favourite millionaire cosmonaut Linux enthusiast, Mark Shuttleworth.
Just imagine what those shirts will be worth on ebay.... And if that's
not enough for you we've also lined up some seriously powerful hardware
from IBM: five POWER5 servers for team entries to the competition.
You can get your hands on a T-shirt by snapping a cool photo of your SFD
event, or perhaps sending us a photo of a Very Important Person enjoying
your SFD event. For the IBM servers you need to do a little more work,
* get your local/national newspaper to publish an article about your
* get yourself interviewed on radio or TV
* write in your blog or podcast about SFD
* make some interesting "urban art" about software freedom
* put some leaflets through people's postboxes
* get some posters up on the lampposts around town
The full competition details and rules (including the categories for
entries) are at http://softwarefreedomday.org/Competition2006.
Competition entries need to be emailed to board at sf-day.org.
PS - 24 days left to go.....
