ComFest 2006, Day One


Today was the first day of ComFest 2006. ComFest is the Community Festival in Columbus. It’s been going on every year since 1972, and is a wonderful showcase of local art, music, and business.

FreeGeek Columbus has a booth at ComFest this year: At first, I was a little trepidatious, unsure whether we would fit well with the bulk of crowd that attends the event. Thankfully my concerns were unfounded: we had a lot of people asking us about recycling computers, GNU/Linux, and computers in general. I think we’ll see a huge influx of donated hardware in the coming weeks!

Adam and Pat were also there, advocating FreeGeek Columbus, GNU/Linux, and Free Software!

Tomorrow I’ll be staffing the FreeGeek booth through the afternoon; then at 8 PM I’ll be serving beer at one of the beer tents. This is what I have to look forward to:

Tomorrow will no doubt be an exhausting day, but I’m really looking forward to it!
