LUGOD at the 2004 Whole Earth Festival

LUGOD had a booth at the 2004 Whole Earth Festival at UC Davis. The Fesitval took place from Friday, May 7th through Sunday, May 9th, and was held outdoors, at the UC Davis Quad.

WEF is "an annual student run event that brings over 30,000 people together to discover and celebrate sustainable and conscious living on Planet Earth."

WEF hours were 12pm-6pm on Friday, and 9am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday. Our FIN (Festival Identification Number) this year was ED-1423.

(We had a booth in 2002 and 2003, as well.)

Our Purpose:

  • To talk to people about Linux and Open Source, and get the word out about LUGOD and the other local LUGs
  • To hand out pamphlets containing information about LUGOD, Linux and Open Source
  • To hand out CDs containing useful software:
    • Knoppix
      A no-commitment, bootable 'Live CD' of Linux.

    • TheOpenCD and GNUWin II
      Collections of popular Open Source software, but compiled for Windows.


The following people volunteered to help out:

  • Emily Stumpf
