Got thoughts about the Affero GPL and/or copyleft strategies in the era of network-based service software? Submit a proposal for today (or at least before the end of Sunday!)

We've got a whole list of ideas here but if you want to get into something that's not on the list? Step right up! If you're interested, then maybe others are too! Just step up quickly -- bc the CFP closes this Sunday.

Hi friends! We'd love to see you at this year on the day after -- don't forget to book an extra night in town!

This is your last week to submit a talk to , don't wait until the weekend, do it during the week so you can relax on the weekend!

We are interested in the future of Copyleft and that means we are very interested in hearing from new folks at in February. Let us know if we can help you feel more comfortable submitting your proposal. (

Ethics is an absolutely critical topic for FOSS, so we added a new topic to the CFP this year, "How copyleft fits in with other efforts to build ethical technology" If you've got thoughts on that, we would love to hear them.

Do you have copyleft questions instead of copyleft answers? Propose a 60 minutes discussion to lead with a friend and take advantage of all the smart/opinionated folks who will be in attendance at and get some answers!

We made a minor but important change to the Code of Conduct this year. It now includes this text, "This code applies to everyone -- including attendees, speakers, volunteers and staff." Thanks to the person who asked for clarification!

Not sure if your talk topic is quite right for ? Take a look at last year's schedule or send us a note! (

Our Executive Director, @o0karen0o was featured on the most recent episode of Explained, where she highlighted the problems with code that is designed without considering the full set of potential users.

Want to get a sense of what last year's was like? You can listen to the keynote by Molly De Blanc titled, "The Margins of Software Freedom" here on @faifcast (Spoiler alert: it was radical and excellent.)

Shotwell was originally developed by a nonprofit organization and is now maintained by the community. Rothschild should not be harassing GNOME with its frivolous claim. We fully support GNOME and encourage others to do the same.
