Over 100 teams registered


And while we’re 2 weeks within the opening of SFD 2013 registration a lot of things are happening. First we saw an amazing 103 teams registered from 39 countries! We are currently producing team packs for those early registered SFD teams i.e. the packs will be delivered to teams that registered on or before July 21th. If you haven’t registered your SFD event yet, simply create your team page  and complete the registration form. All information and links are of course available from SFD website.

Another good news is that we have been talking to our partners to sponsor us with promising prizes for this year SFD Competition, we will announce all the prizes in the coming month. Stay tuned with our latest news by subscribing to our mailing list.

What else? Don’t forget to tell people about SFD! Simply use one of the banners we’ve made if you are organizing, participating, attending or speaking at a SFD event by placing it on your webpages and link it back to your SFD event page or http://www.softwarefreedomday.org. You can also help us to promote SFD by placing our SFD counter with your own language as well!

Happy SFD preparation!

Celebrate SFD with us on September 21, 2013!

DFF Hong Kong site launched!


Digital Freedom Foundation is launching a new website for DFF Hong Kong to represent our local activities. Of course having local activities means we need to be very clear towards our public and have therefore decided to have a different website for what we are doing in Hong Kong. Most likely this will not change much of your relationship with us but this can also be a different angle to your perspective on Free Software, Culture and Hardware and what can be nurtured in your area. We are currently leading a bi-monthly Free Software hackfest called the Loop in Hong Kong and happening at the local hackerspace. Beside that we have set up a forum for members and curious people alike to ask questions or simply participate. We looked at the various possible options and came up with that compromise thinking you can still RSS feed or email subscribe to receive all the notifications. Hopefully this will prove to be working for our group.

So without any further ado please let us introduce you to our Digital Freedom Foundation Hong Kong activities. If you are in Hong Kong, please do come and drop by to visit us at the Loop or just leave us a message in our forum.
