I would just like to share some updates on what LinuxChix has been doing
in our country.

LinuxChix Philippines took part in the Software Freedom Day celebration
last Sept. 20, 2008. More than 500 attendees flocked to the National
Computer Center building at the University of the Philippines in Diliman,
Quezon City for the whole day affair.

A booth was allotted to LinuxChix by the organizers, Bluepoint Linux Users
Elite (alumni of Bluepoint Foundation) and Commission on Information and
Communications Technology (under the office of the President). There were
a lot of inquiries and sign-ups for membership throughout the day. The
press also took interest in what LinuxChix is all about.

Other organizations that supported and sponsored the event were:
Philippine Linux Users Group, Philippine Linux Windows Users Group,
Slackware Linux Users Group Phils., One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), Advanced
Science and Technology Institute (ASTI), Computerworld, Oracle
Philippines, and Sun Microsystems. Trend Micro was the official Codefest
Sponsor that was participated by college students from different
universities and colleges in Metro Manila.

New LinuxChix members received lots of freebies. They expressed interest
in contributing to the official launch of the exclusive chix LUG next
year. ;)

More updates will soon be posted at http://ph.linuxchix.org/
