Beijing Software Freedom Day: A fire breathing Dragon of a success!

SFD

Well, we came, we championed, we explained, we lobbied and we taught. We laughed, we gathered, we swapped tales and we helped clear up some misconceptions.

The sun was out, the sky was blue(ish – not bad by Beijing’s standards) and the students were happy and eager to learn what was going on and to quench their tech/FOSS thirsts. Tsing Hua got rained on by a heap of tech loving goodness!

Anyway, thanks to Google, RedHat, Red Flag, Mozilla and OpenMoko. They paid up cold hard cash to make it all happen. The rest of us did it FOSS style and donated servers, bandwidth, time and eagerness. But at the end of the day, cold hard currency talks! 😉
