We want to
 
* '''Bring people together''' who are on the front lines of free software recruitment and teaching
* '''Create new contributors''' (e.g., software development volunteers) for free software projects
* '''Create more expert users''' who are well-versed with free software and can teach others
 
We're going to do this by organizing a free-of-cost event to celebrate Software Freedom Day here in the Boston area.
