+    <p>Before the GNU project ever existed, before the phrase
+    "Free Software" was ever coined, students and researchers
+    at the University of California, Berkeley were already
+    practising it.  They had acquired the source cdoe to a
+    little-known operating system developed at AT&amp;T
+    Bell Laboratories, and were creating improvments at a
+    ferocious rate.</p>
+
+    <p>These improvements were sent back to Bell Labs, and
+    shared to other Universities.  Each of them were licensed
+    under what is now known as the "Original BSD license".  Find
+    out what this license means, its implications, and what are
+    its decendents by attending this short talk.</p>
