The Dallas Makerspace is hosting it's 4th Software Freedom Day. 

It's typically our second largest event. of the year. Eclipsed by our
open house. 

https://dallasmakerspace.org/wiki/Software_Freedom_Day_2013 [4] 

We have Fedora coming down and several presenters lined up. 

We have been posting the information to social networks. 

Meetup.com facebook twitter reddit .... 

And mostly a lot of emails and phone calls to get people to show up.
