Not sure if I can make it today due to the holiday week, but in any case Bradley and @freedeb will be in @conservancy's channel in 2 and a half hours to chat with anyone who shows up! webchat.freenode.net/#conserva

Bradley and I recorded an episode of the Free as in Freedom Podcast at @SeaGL. It was much fun, and now feels all the more precious that it happened at all. We've posted the "live-on-tape" show:

Conservancy has been a 100% remote organization for over 5 years and we thought it might be helpful to share some of the free software tools that we use to do our work. Questions welcome!

This round I helped w/Outreachy's
application review process, since there were over 900 applications submitted in just the last week! Doing this work made me all the more appreciative of Sage Sharp & @contraexemplo@im-in.space. Reading application essays, which are personal stories of discrimination & bias, is intense & emotional work. While exhausting, this has me keenly remembering how much is needed.

FOSDEM is over but tomorrow the fun continues with the #CopyleftConf. I will participate at a panel about #Copyleft in a business context with many great people where I will share my experience with #Nextcloud. 2020.copyleftconf.org/schedule #FreeSoftware #OpenSource

Our Executive Director & Policy Fellow ( Karen Sandler & Bradley M. Kuhn) will speak at 14:00 in Janson at main track today about: "Open Source Won, but Software Freedom Hasn't Yet: A Guide & Commiseration Session for activists" at fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event

Planning to attend ? I hear the video team can use some more help! They are really cool - volunteering means you get to hang out with them Friday during set up, and have an important job in one of the devrooms. I love seeing come together, it's so impressive.
