Hello everyone,
  Yes, it is that time of the year again, when there
is a nip  in the air, and a young person's fancy
lightly turns to thoughts of Freed.in, http://freed.in

  The third iteration of the event has now been
scheduled for Fri. and Sat., Feb. 20th and 21st, 2009,
at the same venue as before: The School of Information
Technology , Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi.

  As with previous events, we seek to move beyond the
confines of the software world, to join hands with
like-minded people in other areas, and help share the
ideals of Free/Open Source Software (FOSS). The focus
on open content, and unfettered access to knowledge
continues, and this time we have tangible projects
in mind, including:
  o The Open Source Drug Discovery (OSDD) project
  o Open content, and open access:
      * Wikipedia, and similar projects like OpenStreetMap
      * Open access to scientific data, and open publishing
      * Open courseware
  o FOSS technology
  o The community within, and beyond FOSS

  Freed.in (http://freed.in) is an event of, by, and for
the community, and is open to all participants. All planning
will be done through the public Wiki at
http://wiki.linux-delhi.org/cgi-bin/twiki/Freed . Immediate
collateral documents are under
