Software Freedom Day 2007 – Beijing

Just as a head’s up, I’ll be at Software Freedom Day 2007, not in Melbourne, but in Beijing! Its on Saturday, September 15, 2007, and it only starts at 1PM (I presume this means I get to party on Friday night, to re-live some Beijing memories?).

I’m told a beginner-styled talk is best, so what kind of MySQL-related talk would you be after? Business model related? Do give me ideas (sooner, the better). Keep in mind, I’ll have to pass the message on within a good 15 minutes, with 5 minutes for questions…

Check out the program, and I do hope to see you soon, if you’re in Beijing (or if we cross paths – I’m on Dopplr now, so you can play a “Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego” with Where in the World is Colin).

    Best luck to you, but the title sounds like an oxymoron to me, where Internet users are routinely hauled off to labor camps for using softwares to breakthrough the iron-tight blockade of free flow of information. May your presence bring a dash of hope of freedom in Beijing. Thanks!
