To announce FireFox to those who have yet to embrace the browser of teh future, the open source Mozilla campaign is trying to raise enough funds for a full page open source funded advertisement in The New York Times! I think this is a fantastic idea, and have already pledged my (sensibly sutdent priced) $10. If you're interested, check out the details here. As part of your contribution, all those who donate have their names added to the advertisement; it's like being part of open source history!
Perth FireFox fans: there is a FireFox release party planned for Saturday, November 20th at Fast Eddy's in Northbridge. Full details here. The rest of the world has parties going on everywhere, so check here to find yours.
Update (11.55am, 25 Oct 04): According to Asa's comment, the official release date is actually November 9th! Woohoo!
