I'll volunteer to film it and try to include it in my documentary
film, The Digital Tipping Point: The Culture of Freedom in
Seriously, if people don't mind, I would like to arrive there with
my cameraman and the director of DTP, Paul Donahue. We basically
would like to use this picnic as an opportunity to film folks
talking about why they like GNU/Linux, what changes FLOSS will have
on the world, why they contribute code, stuff like that. Think of
it as an update to Revolution OS and The Code movies.
A little bit about my background: I was introduced to FLOSS by
Holden Aust, who then introduced me to Josh Berkus and a bunch of
other people in the FLOSS community. Holden and Josh helped me get
up and running on SuSE Pro, and I love it, and I love the community
spirit. So, as a way of thanking Holden and Josh and all the other
hackers who have contributed to the stuff which a GUI-dependent
simple end user like myself gets to use for a very low cost, I
decided to make this movie with award-winning documentary directory
So if you are interested in participating, and don't mind being
filmed, please come prepared with stories about what you like about
FLOSS, the cool things you've seen it do, and how it is going to
help humanity learn how good it is to share.
I have attached an OOo document summarizing our film, if you'd like
