Libre Planet 2016 conference
March 19-20
@ MIT

LibrePlanet is an annual conference hosted by the Free Software
Foundation (FSF) for people who care about their digital freedoms,
bringing together software developers, policy experts, activists, and
computer users to learn skills, share accomplishments, and address
challenges facing the free software movement. LibrePlanet 2016 will
feature programming for a wide range of ages and experience levels.

Organized around the theme "Fork the System", the conference's sessions
will examine how free software creates the opportunity of a new path for
its users, allows developers to fight the restrictions of a system
dominated by proprietary software by creating free replacements, and is
the foundation of a philosophy of freedom, sharing, and change.

Edward Snowden will be the keynote speaker. Check out the program to see
