Long time TECH cocktail supporter Daliah Saper, via her law firm Saper Law, is putting together a conference covering open source software on February 17th.  It looks like she is doing a great job lining up speakers and I have no doubt the conference will be well worth it for anyone interested in the open source movement and its implications.  The early bird discount ends on 2/7/09 so if you are interested make sure to register before then.  Details, a note from Daliah and a discount code are below.


Dear TECH cocktailers,

I hope you can all join me on February 17, 2009 as we kick off the first ever Saper Law Open Source Symposium. This full-day conference dedicated to all things Open Source has already attracted some pretty snazzy sponsors (TECH cocktail included)–and no less than 15 speakers from a variety of industries. All the information is available at Enter the code TC for a 20% discount.

See you soon!
