As we wrote a few months ago in this blog, Ercole Carpanetto planned to hold Mappano Open Days in his town in Italy.
Mappano Open Days took place this weekend.
In correspondence with Ercole, he says that the event was a success, where they gave away 200 Live CDs and DVDs of GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software programs to some businessmen and a lot of students and home users.
Like Lindependence in Felton, people came from far and wide: Three women came from Milano, which is more than 150 kilometers away, and a teacher came from Bologna, which is about 200 kilometers away. That beats us: The farthest distance people came to Felton was from Oakland and Berkeley, about 80 miles tops.
Good one, Ercole! Grazie!
