The relevant message is below, but if anyone in the area would like to go
protest the SCO talk and hand out free Linux CDs, I'm told these people
would appreciate some company from Harvard students.

Subject: Come harass SCO with fellow Slugs!


Hey slugs! So there's this company, SCO, which claims they own all of
linux, and better yet, that the GPL is unconstitutional. They are claiming
copyright to (now) the entire linux kernel, even parts with Linus
Torvalds wrote himself (which he can show via changelogs). Well, Harvard
decided to invite him to speak:

Here's a map:

We've made up flyers and free linux CDs to give out; hopefully a positive
presence can counter some of their FUD. There will also be a Q&A
afterwards :)

We're hoping that our Pro-Linux group will be dressed nicely as well, to
dispel the linux hippie image :)

Anywho, I'll be leaving from the hall at around 5:00 or so; various others
will be leaving after that. It's a bit of a walk from the harvard T, so
plan accordingly.

PS: please reply to salt at mit.edu, as slugtech likes low traffic.
