Friday, July 12, afternoon
When I spoke with Jon early Friday evening he said activity near the EFC booth seemed slow, but wasn't surprised; it's Friday (a work-day) and most of the crowd is fairly young. He estimates 25,000 attendance today, and expects it might double on Saturday. A few EFC T-shirts have been sold (Jon says they look awesome!), and the joint EFF-EFC membership drive is going well with several people signing up already. (EFF's T-shirts are unfortuntately stuck in Canada Customs!) There's lots of interest in the EFC brochures and cards. The EFF folks are giving away various buttons (blue ribbon and golden key campaigns) and they have neato "wash-off" blue-ribbon tattoos that seem very popular.
So it sounds like we're off to a good start for the weekend.
If you want to listen to the bands, the Live Cybercast is up and running. There's a live Real-Audio feed working at:
