FOSS.IN/2008

PROMO VIDEO

I just saw the promo video of FOSS.IN 2008. It’s a well composed video that tells of what is going to happen at this year’s edition of FOSS.IN. Do check it out.

The video kind of made me rethink of my decision not to go to this year’s FOSS. Best of Luck to all the organizers. Hope it’s going to be a huge success.
