Reclaiming ICT education - Why free software is a necessity in schools

My formal education in computing ended at the age of 14, about six weeks into a GCSE (The UK equivalent of the US's High School Diploma) course in ICT. I've had a lifelong passion for computers, but despite this, I opted instead to study Design and Technology and never looked back.

FAVE 2006 - creative free software event, 25th November, London

FAVE is an event in the UK for people who are interested in free audio and video software on Linux and other platforms. I'm helping to put together the second annual event, which will feature talks, workshops and performances by free software artists and developers.

Entry costs £5 and registration in advance is required, via the FAVE website at This is just to help us cover the venue costs, and give us an idea of the number of people coming.

If any FSM readers would like to help out with publicity, or on the day itself, they would be most welcome.
