We are launching a new celebration around Open Hardware called Hardware Freedom Day and which will be celebrated one month before Culture Freedom Day on April 20 2013.
As Open Hardware mixes a bit of the three pillars on which we focus (software, art/culture and hardware) we have chosen this date to enable people to either merge HFD and CFD (as open hardware necessary involves design, which arguably involves artists) or only focus on the part they feel more relevant to them by only celebrating one or the other international day.
Stay tuned with HFD by subscribing to our HFD mailing list and help us to promote HFD with our HFD countdowns and banners. What's more? Those who register before March 15 will receive a event kit! Register now!
After a successful SFD 2012 we had to relocate SFI to a new country. We are currently still waiting for the legal approval to our pending business registration to make any official announcement. The process involved making a plan for the upcoming three years with a bigger focus on 2013.
So for all the SFD fans out there we are happy to confirm that both Culture Freedom Day and Software Freedom Day are here to stay!
As far as other news are concerned we are still waiting on websites and infrastructure to be ready before making the big announcements. So stay tuned (look at column on the left side of this one) and you'll be rewarded!
