 Two conferences are just around the corner that fellow free software and
free culture advocates, hackers, curious technology users, and critical
media participants won't want to miss.
LibrePlanet<http://libreplanet.org/wiki/LibrePlanet:Conference/2013>and
Free
Culture X 2013 <http://www.fcx2013.org/> are two really exciting
conferences at the intersection of technology, social justice, and media
studies.

 LibrePlanet is the Free Software Foundation <https://www.fsf.org/>'s
annual conference, this year titled "Commit Change", and will take place at
the Harvard University Science Center on March 23rd & 24th 2013 or, in
other words, very very soon! Free Culture X 2013 is this year's Students
for Free Culture <http://freeculture.org/> conference and will take place
April 20th & 21st at New York Law School.

 What can you expect at each?

 <http://libreplanet.org/wiki/LibrePlanet:Conference/2013>

 LibrePlanet <http://libreplanet.org/wiki/LibrePlanet:Conference/2013> has
a lot to offer people from different areas of expertise with varying levels
of experience in free software. Whether you're interested in the profound
social implications of software ownership, producing and sharing media with
free technologies, or harnessing your own power over the computers around
you as a hacker, you can get a lot out of  meeting fellow conference-goers
and attending the talks and workshops at LibrePlanet.

 Registration <https://crm.fsf.org/civicrm/event/register?reset=1&id=9> is
free for FSF Associate
Members<https://www.fsf.org/associate/support_freedom/join_fsf?referrer=2442>,
or $90 otherwise. Discounted rates are available for students or for a
single-day pass, and of course volunteering is a great way to get in at no
cost at all! If you are unable to attend, there will be a live broadcast of
the event online.

 Free Culture X 2013 <http://www.fcx2013.org/> is half conference, with one
day of talks and panels by brilliant minds challenging media monopolies and
permission culture, and half unconference, with participatory workshops and
working groups.

 Registration <https://fcx2013.eventbrite.com/> is 100% pay-what-you-want,
with a suggested donation of $15.00. Proceeds from the conference will help
defray the costs of running a nonprofit, so please support as much as you
can!

 Both conferences will be very accessible and you should absolutely come if
you are able. If you can't come, consider following along with the live
webcast, participating in discussions during the events through social
media, spreading the word now for others to attend, and donating if free
software and free culture are valuable to you.
