Software freedom day

My hats off to the organizers of the Software Freedom Day in Davao City yesterday.

DabaweGNU, USEP FOSS Club and Kaiban.

The attendance at the whole day FOSS fair at the University of Southeastern Philippines (USEP) was beyond their expectations. Students from several schools in the city as well as IT professionals, representatives from government, NGOs and business jampacked the Social Hall of the university to watch demos and listen to presentations.

Online on a big screen were simultaneous events at the University of the Philippines in Manila and in Vietnam.

I spoke briefly in behalf of the city government. The city’s contribution to the worldwide movement for FOSS augurs well to our efforts to position the city as an ICT hub.
