Organize an event in a public square in the center of Bucharest, near University of Bucharest.
We will talk with young and old people that stop by. We will start by asking them
- if they use a computer,
- what software do they use most,
- if they are frustrated with some of its behaviour,
- what rights they would like to have (distribute, analyze, change);
Depending if the software is Free or Proprietary we will tell them how to use their freedom or recommend a Free alternative.
We will put some CC-BY-SA music on a GNU/Linux notebook connected to speakers (we can find a plug nearby). We will also give live demonstrations of how user-friendly GNU/Linux is (with latest GNOME 3, KDE Plasma).
As members of Ceata, an organization devoted to Free Arts and Technologies, we have organized in the past 5-6 public events in two universities from Bucharest (Politehnica and ASE). This time we want to approach ordinary people in the street, not necessarily students.
We will share CD's with free OS's and we'll give free alternatives for Proprietary software.
The event will take place in Herăstrău Park and we will make demonstrations on our laptops of how free OS's and software work.
People could come with their own laptops for a fresh installation of a free OS( Ubuntu, Kubuntu).
