meetBSD California and FreeBSD 15 Year Anniversary Party

It was 15 years ago that Internet history was forever changed when
FreeBSD 1.0 was released. We will be hosting the 15 Year Anniversary
Party at the meetBSD California conference in Mountain View,

meetBSD California, based on the popular meetBSD conference in Poland,
is a 2 day event on Saturday and Sunday, November 15th and 16th, 2008.

This first meetBSD will be more FreeBSD-centric than usual, due to the anniversary.

Besides the intimate BSD conference with notable BSD speakers and
great FreeBSD Anniversary/meetBSD schwag, we'll be having the private
FreeBSD Anniversary party at Buddha Lounge in Mountain View on
Saturday night. Anybody attending the FreeBSD 10 Year Anniversary
Party can attest to the fact that this is not to be missed!

Of course, there will be a commemorative anniversary t-shirt for
attendees as well as other exciting prizes ;-)

The cost to attend is a nominal $50 dollars. If any profits are made
from the conference attendees and sponsors, after costs are deducted,
they will be donated to the FreeBSD Foundation.
