Campus Party Brazil 2009 in São Paulo comes to a close this Sunday. Over 6,500 people have taken part in this second edition of what is arguably Latin America's largest technology and digital culture event, bringing discussions around blogs, robotics, photography and video, games, modding, free software, digital inclusion, and even ecology. In this photo overview of the event, you will see a selection of curious pictures among the thousand images posted on Flickr under Creative Commons licenses.

No final das contas, o que ocorre, não conseguimos a musica, pois segundo a organização do evento, tem um hospital aqui do lado e já reclamaram duas vezes, na terceira veio um oficial de justiça aqui pedindo o encerramento do evento.

There were some demonstrations against the controversial Digital Crimes Bill, which may be passed in the Congress at some point this year:
