Software Freedom Day 2009 Party

After last year's success (the Software Freedom Concert 2008) we, the Vienna Fellowship Group of the Free Software Foundation Europe, organised a Software Freedom Party 2009 to celebrate the Software Freedom Day in the hackerspace Metalab.at.

Free Snacks

Our announcement had promised free Ubuntu-CDs, free music and freedom-loving people, but acknowledged snacks would be (while free of charge) unfree. This sparked a huge discussion on the metalab mailing list: why should it not be possible to have free (as in speech) snacks?

So we came up with a GFDL-licensed recipe for popcorn. Clearly, that was the most popular snack all party long.

Notably, the freedom to improve the recipe was deemed crucial, especially with respect to step 7.
