    There have been a number of Open Software Phone projects that have happened in the past year and which continue to move forward: more>>

  • Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit - Austin, Texas - April 8th to 10th, 2008 -

    Unlike a lot of the events that I discuss in my Blog, the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is a "by invitation only" event with a twist. Normally for "invitation only events", the potential attendee sits by the phone with their prom clothes on, waiting for the call that may or may not come. more>>

  • Campus Party, February 11-17, 2008, Sao Paulo, Brazil -

    After speaking at the Florida Linux Show on February 11th, I return ever-so-briefly to the New England area to re-pack my bags and head for Sao Paulo, Brazil to attend Campus Party (February 11th to 17th, 2008). more>>

    Richard Stallman’s Blog

  • Volunteer -

    I am looking for people to help webmasters of various sites (not related to me or GNU) make simple but substantial changes in their web sites — for instance, to use the GNU Project's recommended terminology.

  • Crimes committed by Salafi Arabia -

    The UK is blocking a UN investigation of war crimes committed by Salafi Arabia in bombarding Yemen.

  • African gray parrots endangered -

    African gray parrots are endangered in the wild because of capturing them for use as pets.

    The experience of being captured and caged is terribly traumatic for a wild parrot. Never buy a pet parrot without verifying it was raised by human breeders.

  • FSF Blogs: What do you have to say? Share it at LibrePlanet 2017 -

    The call for proposals is open now, until November 14th, 2016. General registration, exhibitor registration, and volunteer applications will open soon.

    Do you have a free software-related topic to teach or talk about? You've got until Wednesday, November 14th, 2016 at 18:59 EST (23:59 UTC) to submit your proposals.

    Every year, LibrePlanet brings together developers, policy experts, activists, hackers and end users. It's a place to learn new skills, share accomplishments and face challenges to computer user freedom together as a community. If you're new to the community, check out last year's conference site and session videos, including the opening keynote, a conversation with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, for a taste of what's to come.

    What kind of sessions are we looking for?

    LibrePlanet is defined by its combination of technical talks with non-technical sessions on free software activism, culture and current events. You might:

    • Share an update on your free software project
    • Examine how free software can aid education, community organizing, medicine, art, or social movements
    • Teach a workshop on how to use a free software program or free hardware project
    • Lead a project "sprint" (a group work session)
    • Explore issues related to free software licensing and copyleft

    This year, the theme of LibrePlanet is "The Roots of Freedom." This encompasses the historical "roots" of the free software movement -- the Four Freedoms, the GNU General Public License and copyleft, and a focus on strong security and privacy protections -- and the concept of roots as a strong foundation from which the movement grows. What aspect or advantage of free software is most valuable to you? What's arising from the movement's deep roots, and where? Can you identify exciting developments from the roots of freedom in education, business, activism, or the arts?

    We're committed to increasing the participation of speakers belonging to groups traditionally underrepresented at free software conferences, including women and people of color. If you're comfortable sharing demographic information, there is an area for it on the proposal form, but your proposal will not be judged negatively if you leave those fields blank.

    It's important to us to provide sessions that are friendly to newcomers, as well as those that help experienced hackers push their technical skills. Whatever your experience level or the experience level of your audience, we want to include your session! (As a corollary of this, we welcome sessions for kids or teens.)

    What makes LibrePlanet so special is the thought-provoking, useful, and entertaining contributions from our speakers, attendees, exhibitors, and volunteers. We can't wait to hear your ideas. Submit a proposal now!

    If you'd like to sponsor LibrePlanet, please email us at campaigns@fsf.org.

    About the Free Software Foundation

    The Free Software Foundation, founded in 1985, is dedicated to promoting computer users' right to use, study, copy, modify, and redistribute computer programs. The FSF promotes the development and use of free (as in freedom) software -- particularly the GNU operating system and its GNU/Linux variants -- and free documentation for free software. The FSF also helps to spread awareness of the ethical and political issues of freedom in the use of software, and its Web sites, located at fsf.org and gnu.org, are an important source of information about GNU/Linux.

  • FSF Events: Richard Stallman - "¿Tenemos que soportar más vigilancia que en la Unión Soviética?" (Seville, Spain) -
    La tecnología digital ha dado la posibilidad a los gobiernos de imponer una vigilancia que hubiera sido el sueño de Stalin, que nos impide comunicar con los periodistas sin ser detectados. Esta situación pone en peligro la democracia. Stallman analizará los límites a la vigilancia que impone la democracia y sugerirá métodos para diseñar sistemas que no recopilen información sobre todos los ciudadanos.

    Esa charla de Richard Stallman no será técnica y será abierta al público; todos están invitados a asistir.

    El título, el lugar exacto, y la hora de la charla serán determinados.

    Favor de rellenar este formulario, para que podamos contactarle acerca de eventos futuros en la región de Sevilla.
