Open Options: Remix Computing with Open Source Software (event at Millersville University)

About

Millersville University in Millersville (near Lancaster) is hosting an event called Open Options: Remix Computing with Open Source Software.

The event is designed to introduce students and faculty to the concept and philosophy of open source software. It will consist of approximately a 1 hour round table discussion on Open Source and approximately 1 hour of casual demonstrations, discussion and questions (think: tables with demos, people wandering around, cookies, coffee, chat).

More detail about this event is being discussed on the mailing list, starting with this post: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-us-pa/2009-December/000920.html, you can also contribute to discussion on the forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1349629
