Preparación: Debido a la invitación a este evento fue con un dia de
anticipacion no estaba preparado para participar como embajador Fedora,
sin embargo con algunas ideas [User:tatica Tatica] logramos prepararnos
un poco para este evento, por lo que imprimimos unas etiquetas de Fedora
de los artes que estan en la wiki y preparamos un boton Fedora que
utilizamos para identificarnos como Fedora en el evento.

Este evento fue organizado por la  http://www.fslpma.org Fraternidad de
Software Libre de Panama y la http://www.ciudaddelsaber.org Cuidad del
Saber se realizo en el salon de conferencia de la Ciudad del saber. 

En general estuvo interesante ver la presentacion de Richard Stallman y
sus puntos sobre el software Libre y Linux. 

Se aprovecho la oportunidad para tener contacto con la Fraternidad de
Software libre de Panama ya que ellos realizan eventos durante el año,
por lo que me puse a su disposicion para participar en cualquier evento
como Fedora.

Se converso con algunos participantes sobre Fedora y se les invito a
participar en el proyecto, se repartieron los calcamonias y se
realizaron otros contactos para proximos eventos
