Software Freedom Day, ( goes Future Perfect at ANC

Tonight at ANC's Future Perfect, Our Ms. Deng Silorio and POSNet President Lawrence Libo-on joined TJ Manotoc to feature and discuss the upcoming Software Freedom Day which will be held on September 17, 2011 at St. Paul University Philippines, Tuguegarao, Cagayan.

Deng and Lawrz was accompanied by Meric and Lariz to document the fact in behalf of the team. This stint is truly a mark that the collaborative efforts of the Team SFD.PH exposes our advocacy to be heard, to be seen and to be shared in more venues and media.

Lawrz was able to expound the impact of Open Source and the implications as well of Open Source as concrete manifestations in the tech gadgets and computer applications that we use day by day. He also encouraged students and IT Practitioners to take a look at Open Source, reinvent and share with the community. Thus, having a wider perspective of technology.

Deng in turn was able to plug KahelOS which is an Open Source innovation,free for all to use. But more importantly she did emphasize the reason why we do celebrate Software Freedom Day; 1. As an advocacy to spread the benefit of free open source software as an alternative to commercial ones. 2. A venue for F/OSS Enthusiasts and Practitioners to give back to the community 3. To instill and imbibe innovation and nationalism.
