Why hackathons should insist on free software: a new article by RMS
From September 12th
Richard Stallman's latest article explains how free software, by its very nature, is the only software suited for hackathons.
New FSF membership benefit: LibreOffice certification
From September 19th
Using LibreOffice gets many people started down the path of free software. People who are certified in LibreOffice migrations and trainings are able to help companies and government offices make the switch away from proprietary office suites, and that raises the value of a deep understanding of LibreOffice. Thanks to The Document Foundation, FSF members can now apply for that certification, gaining valuable skills and helping to spread the use of free software around the world.
Explore free software and libre culture at the Coliberator conference in Bucharest, Romania
The fifth edition of the Coliberator conference is upon us -- October 7th and 8th, in Bucharest, Romania! FSF founder and president Richard Stallman is going to be delivering the keynote speech. This year's talks will cover issues of software freedom in mobile, hardware, business, public administration, privacy, net neutrality, libre culture, and localization of libre software, and there will be both a Replicant and a Libreboot workshop. Register today!
The Apple is still rotten: Why you should avoid the new iPhone
From September 12th
As they usually do every September, Apple announced the arrival of several new iPhone models and other updated gadgets. As usual, the phones were revealed with great fanfare -- but from the glass exterior down to its guts, the new iPhone is just another freedom-restricting trap for unsuspecting users.
Support the Talos II, a candidate for Respects Your Freedom (RYF) certification
From September 8th
The Talos II comes in a variety of forms to meet your needs, from a workstation to rack-mounted to the board by itself. This system is great for any hacker who needs a powerful machine, perfect for developing even more free software. Pre-orders closed on September 15, but there are still ways to support this important project, by supporting our work on the RYF project.
A new Replicant 6.0 release
From September 17th by Wolfgang Wiedmeyer
This release more than doubles the number of devices supported by this fully free Android distribution, and contains a few important fixes and improvements. The latest changes from LineageOS 13.0 are included. They are mostly security fixes, so updating is recommended!
August 2017: RMS at FOSS4G, in Boston
From August 31st
On August 17th, RMS was at the International Conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) this month, in Boston, MA, to give his speech ?Free software: Freedom, privacy, sovereignty? to an audience of about a thousand academics, businesspeople, government employees, and, mostly, developers.
World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) appeal fails, votes kept secret
From September 18th by Brian Lunduke
The W3C?s decisions to keep votes about Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) secret and to censure the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) for ?disclosing even vague sense of a vote? raises serious concerns. The W3C is the exact opposite of open: a closed cabal (with a high price tag for participation) that decides, in secret, what the future of the ?free and open Web? will be. Every human being on the planet should be concerned about this.
DRM will unravel the Web
From September 18 by Christopher Allan Webber
The W3C has allowed DRM to move forward on the Web through the Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) specification (which is, to paraphrase Danny O'Brien from the EFF, a "DRM shaped hole where nothing else but DRM fits"). This threatens to unravel the Web as we know it. How could this happen? How did we get here?
With the W3C captured by the copyright industry, who will step up to lead Web development next?
From September 20th by Rick Falkvinge
The W3C, which used to develop standards for the Web, has been captured by the copyright industry. In a doubly controversial vote, the W3C decided that media companies and not the user should be in control, ending their longstanding commitment to openness and the Internet?s core values. The open question is what new body Web developers will choose to follow for future generations of standards.
Project adapts GNU Guix reproducibility software for high performance computing (HPC) environments
From September 5th by HPCWire
Reproducing experiments and results is a cornerstone of science, but researchers acknowledge that actually achieving this feat can be tricky. GNU Guix -- a free software program that is used to fully reproduce computational environments -- might be part of the solution, says Ludovic Courtès of Inria, the French National Institute for computer science and applied mathematics in Bordeaux.
GNU Guix is one of the projects funded through our Working Together for Free Software Fund. If you want to help GNU Guix expand its reach, you can donate specifically to this project here!
Silicon Valley has been humbled, but its schemes are as dangerous as ever
From September 2nd by Evgeny Morozov
The Silicon Valley backlash is on. These days, one can hardly open a major newspaper without stumbling on passionate calls that demand curbs on the power of what is now frequently called ?Big Tech,? from reclassifying digital platforms as utility companies to even nationalizing them. Their insistence on proprietary software and Service as a Software Substitute is tied up with many of these abuses.
Hewlett Packard (HP) back to bricking third-party ink
From September 14th by Sam Rutherford
It came as a bit of a surprise when HP actually made some concessions after pushing out an update that bricked unofficial ink cartridges last year. Unfortunately, it seems HP has now returned to its iron-fisted ways, once again locking down the use of third-party ink with a software update.
GNU Press spotlight: The Bison Manual, on sale!
Bison is a general-purpose parser generator that can help the C programmer develop a wide range of language parsers, from those used in simple desktop calculators to complex programming languages. The Bison Manual provides a quick overview of the theory behind context-free grammars and semantic values. It has both an introductory tutorial section with examples and a reference section which explores parts of Bison in detail. Normally $25, this valuable resource is now available for only $13!
September Free Software Directory meeting recaps
Check out the great work our volunteers accomplished at the September Free Software Directory meetings. Every week free software activists from around the world come together in #fsf on irc.freenode.org to help improve the Free Software Directory.
September 1st meeting
September 8th meeting
September 15th meeting
September 22nd meeting
Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory
Tens of thousands of people visit https://directory.fsf.org each month to discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth of useful information, from basic category and descriptions to version control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing. The Free Software Directory has been a great resource to software users over the past decade, but it needs your help staying up-to-date with new and exciting free software projects.
To help, join our weekly IRC meetings on Fridays. Meetings take place in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org, and usually include a handful of regulars as well as newcomers. Freenode is accessible from any IRC client -- Everyone's welcome!
The next meeting is Friday, October 6th, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC). Details here:
LibrePlanet featured resource: LibrePlanet Rapid Responders
Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.
For this month, we are highlighting LibrePlanet Rapid Responders, which is a network of activists who aim to spread the free software philosophy in the press, blogs, forums, and social media. You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this important resource.
Do you have a suggestion for next month's featured resource? Let us know at email@example.com.
