"There's no shortage of events focused on free and open source
software. You can't swing a penguin without hitting a conference
these days, so we interviewed FSF membership coordinator Deborah
Nicholson to find out what makes LibrePlanet different from some of
the other events going on this Spring.
"OStatic: What's the history of LibrePlanet? How did the event
come together, and how long has it been going?
"LibrePlanet grew out of the FSF annual associate members
meeting that we've been holding since 2003. This is the second year
we've made it open to non-members. We realized we wanted to use our
annual gathering to inspire more free software activism and allow
more interactive time for teaching, sharing and hacking."
