    Just got this from Asheesh Laroia (cc'd), and it looks like a
pretty cool event. I'm thinking of checking it out -- lemme know if
you're interested!

Hi HCS,

This weekend, I'm co-organizing a free-of-cost event that helps bring
people together from different Boston-area programming groups and free
software communities. We'd love to have some Harvard students attend!

It's primarily an event about community, with an installfest component.

We do have a sponsored after-party, where if you're 21+, we'll buy you
a beer. If not, you can still have a (non-alcoholic) drink on us. More
info and sign-up:

9/17 OpenHatch hosts Software Freedom Day

Software Freedom Day is a free-of-cost, community-oriented event being
held in Cambridge, Massachusetts at 1000 Massachusetts Ave, from 10am
- 5pm on September 17th. The goal of the event is to help people in
the Boston area recognize and join existing local free
software-related communities. If you've been trying to learn more
about free software generally, or have been wondering how to build up
your free software project, this event is for you!

Máirín Duffy from Red Hat and Fedora is our keynote speaker. Thanks to
the Free Software Foundation, Cambridge College and Open Invention
Network for their sponsorship! More details here,
