Installfest in Edmonton September 15 and 16, 2006
Liberating Students Digitally, an open source software advocate and user group at the University of Alberta, will be holding our third annual Fall Installfest on September 15 and 16, 2006. This year's 'fest will take place in the first-floor common area of the Computing Science Centre, a space provided by our partners for the installfest, the Undergraudate Association of Computing Science.
Our "default" distro this time around will be Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake), but as always we're open to special requests of all sorts. We're also planning to have a couple of demo machines for people to play with, and some informational displays to raise awareness of free and open source software. As usual, we'll be providing monitors, mice, keyboards, speakers, etc. for installs, so all you need to lug is your laptop or tower.
We're looking for volunteers, so if you're interested and will be in Edmonton come September, we'd love to hear from you. The plan is to have an online registration system up soon, but if you don't want to wait for that, feel free to send us an email. Full details are on our (frequently updated) website, http://www.digital-liberation.ca.
