Welcome to the *Free Software Supporter*, the Free Software
Foundation's (FSF) monthly news digest and action update -- being read
by you and 208,443 other activists. That's 1,667 more than last month!

### Double the movement: Inspire someone to explore free software

*From June 19*

Thank you for being part of our exceptionally generous community. Your
interest in our mission is what got us where we are, in position to
succeed if we keep at it. While it's incredible to have hundreds of
thousands of subscribers around the world, we need to connect with
millions if we're to realize a world free of proprietary
software. This spring, we have set ourselves goals to reach [200 new
members](https://my.fsf.org/join) and [400
donations](https://my.fsf.org/donate) before July 15th, and to achieve
them, we need your help. Please take this moment to publicly share
your passion for free software. If each free software supporter
inspires just one other, we can double our strength.

### Drop the journalism charges against Julian Assange

*From June 25*

The US government has persecuted Julian Assange for a decade for
WikiLeaks' journalism, and now seeks to use his case to label the
publishing of leaked secret information as spying.

The Free Software Foundation stands for freedom of publication and due
process, because they are necessary to exercise and uphold the
software freedom we campaign for. The attack on journalism threatens
freedom of publication; the twisting of laws to achieve an unstated
aim threatens due process of law. The FSF therefore calls on the
United States to drop all present and future charges against Julian
Assange relating to WikiLeaks activities.

*

### A roundup of recent updates to our licensing materials -- November 2018 to June 2019

*From June 4*

We recently added two new licenses to our list of [Various Licenses
and Comments about
Them](https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html) and we updated
our comments on [Creative Commons 0
(CC0)](https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.en.html#CC0). We
cleaned up the [Free Software Foundation (FSF) Licensing & Compliance
Team page](https://www.fsf.org/licensing/) and refreshed the materials
on it. What follows is a brief rundown on those changes, and how you
can learn more about free software licensing.

*

### GNU Emacs T-shirts available now at the GNU Press Shop

*From June 25*

Have you been waiting with bated breath for the opportunity to show
your love for GNU Emacs, the text editor that also does everything
else, with a nifty T-shirt? Wait no longer. The GNU Press Shop now has
[GNU Emacs logo
T-shirts](https://shop.fsf.org/tshirts-hoodies/gnu-emacs-logo-t-shirt)
in unisex sizes S through XXXL. All GNU Press Shop purchases support
the Free Software Foundation's efforts to free all software, and FSF
associate members get a 20% discount off of all purchases.

*

### AMD Secure Technology PSP firmware now explorable, thanks to researcher's tool

*From June 6 by Lucian Armasu*

A security researcher this month released the PSPtool, a software tool
that “aims to lower the entry barrier for looking into the code
running" on the AMD Platform Security Processor (PSP), officially
known as AMD Secure Technology, and other AMD subsystems. The PSP
serves similar functions to those of [Intel’s Management Engine (ME)
processor](https://www.fsf.org/blogs/sysadmin/the-management-engine-an-attack-on-computer-users-freedom). Just
like the Intel ME, it is an attack on computer users' freedom. We hope
this tool will help in the development of free replacements or removal
processes for the PSP.

### Spotify pursues emotional surveillance for global profit

*From June 10 by Liz Pelly*

Music is emotional, and so our listening often signals something
deeply personal and private. Today, this means music streaming
platforms are in a unique position within the greater platform
economy: they have troves of data related to our emotional states,
moods, and feelings. It’s a matter of unprecedented access to our
interior lives, which is buffered by the flimsy illusion of
privacy. When a user chooses, for example, a “private listening”
session on Spotify, the effect is to make them feel that it’s a
one-way relation between person and machine. Of course, that
personalization process is Spotify’s way of selling users on its
product. But, as it turns out, in a move that should not surprise
anyone at this point, Spotify has been selling access to that
listening data to multinational corporations.

Don't let them harvest your emotional information! Instead, help
better services powered by free, distributed software like
[libre.fm](https://libre.fm) grow.

*

### Behind the scenes of Purism's all-free software video production

*From June 12 by François Téchené*

At Purism, they aim to promote privacy and freedom through the use of
free software (and they see it as ethical software). In this blog,
they describe the process of producing a commercial clip using only
free software, including GIMP, Magic Lantern, MLV-App, and more.

*

### Replicant contributors meeting on July 27-28 in France

*From June 18 by GNUtoo*

A Replicant contributors meeting will take place in or near Paris on
the 27th and 28th of July. Organizers are still looking for a place to
host the meeting, which will be open to anyone who contributes or
wants to contribute to the Replicant project, and will likely be
conducted in English.

*

### Blender is free software

*From June 8 by Ton Roosendaal*

Did you know: the Blender 3D creation suite is free software, forever!
It is free to use for everyone. Free to use for any purpose, also
commercially. Blender is free to share with others, it is free to
study Blender’s sources and free to make new versions.

*

### GNU Radio used to track the tagged orangutans in the Bornean jungle

*From June 4 by RTL-SDR.com admin*

To ensure the ongoing safety of endangered orangutans in Borneo, NGOs,
charities and rescue centers have been using RF tags on rehabilitated
orangutans that have released back into the wild. One limitation of
the system is a limited tracking range. To create a heatmap of
orangutan positions, researcher Dirk Gorissen used GNU Radio to create
a DSP algorithm combining peak detection, cross correlation with a
known template of the signal, and a phase locked loop.

*

### The 2019 SeaGL Call for Proposals is open!

*From June 24 by SeaGL*

The 2019 Seattle GNU/Linux Conference is scheduled for November 15th
and 16th at Seattle Central College. They'll be accepting proposals
through August 11, 2019, and they welcome speakers of all backgrounds
and levels of experience -- even if you’ve never spoken at a technical
conference. If you’re excited about free software technologies or
communities, then they want to hear from you!

*

### Register and submit talks for the GNU Hackers Meeting 2019

*From April 16 by GNU Hackers Meeting organizers*

Twelve years after its first edition in Orense, the GNU Hackers
Meeting is back to Spain! This time, we will be gathering in the nice
city of Madrid for hacking, learning and meeting each other. The
meeting will be held at Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería de
Sistemas Informáticos (ETSISI), which is part of the Universidad
Politécnica de Madrid. Learn how to register and submit talks at the
link below.

### GNOME Foundation 2018 annual report

*From June 27 by the GNOME Foundation*

What a wonderful year 2018 was! We are very excited to share with you
some of our best moments, achievements, and great conferences/events
which happened throughout the year in our [annual
report](https://www.gnome.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/GNOMEAnnualReport-2018-final.pdf).

*

### GNOME Asia Summit 2019 to be held in Gresik, Indonesia

*From June 17 by GNOME Foundation*

The GNOME Foundation is pleased to announce that GNOME Asia Summit
2019 will take place in Gresik, Indonesia between October 11-13 at the
Universitas Muhammadiyah Gresik (UMG). The GNOME Asia 2019 Summit will
consist of two conference days and one day of workshops, in order to
encourage more contribution by GNOME.Asia participants to core areas
of GNOME.

### Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory

Tens of thousands of people visit 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, July 5, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:

### LibrePlanet featured resource: Making money as a libre software programmer

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 Making money as a libre software
programmer, which provides information about how to separate out the
"free" from the "libre" in your professional life as a free software
supporter. You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this important
resource.

Double the movement: Inspire someone to explore free software



From June 19



Thank you for being part of our exceptionally generous community. Your
interest in our mission is what got us where we are, in position to
succeed if we keep at it. While it's incredible to have hundreds of
thousands of subscribers around the world, we need to connect with
millions if we're to realize a world free of proprietary
software. This spring, we have set ourselves goals to reach 200 new
members
and 400
donations
before July 15th, and to achieve
them, we need your help. Please take this moment to publicly share
your passion for free software. If each free software supporter
inspires just one other, we can double our strength.

Drop the journalism charges against Julian Assange



From June 25



The US government has persecuted Julian Assange for a decade for
WikiLeaks' journalism, and now seeks to use his case to label the
publishing of leaked secret information as spying.



The Free Software Foundation stands for freedom of publication and due
process, because they are necessary to exercise and uphold the
software freedom we campaign for. The attack on journalism threatens
freedom of publication; the twisting of laws to achieve an unstated
aim threatens due process of law. The FSF therefore calls on the
United States to drop all present and future charges against Julian
Assange relating to WikiLeaks activities.






A roundup of recent updates to our licensing materials -- November 2018 to June 2019



From June 4



We recently added two new licenses to our list of Various Licenses
and Comments about
Them
and we updated
our comments on Creative Commons 0
(CC0)
. We
cleaned up the Free Software Foundation (FSF) Licensing & Compliance
Team page
and refreshed the materials
on it. What follows is a brief rundown on those changes, and how you
can learn more about free software licensing.






GNU Emacs T-shirts available now at the GNU Press Shop



From June 25



Have you been waiting with bated breath for the opportunity to show
your love for GNU Emacs, the text editor that also does everything
else, with a nifty T-shirt? Wait no longer. The GNU Press Shop now has
GNU Emacs logo
T-shirts

in unisex sizes S through XXXL. All GNU Press Shop purchases support
the Free Software Foundation's efforts to free all software, and FSF
associate members get a 20% discount off of all purchases.






AMD Secure Technology PSP firmware now explorable, thanks to researcher's tool



From June 6 by Lucian Armasu



A security researcher this month released the PSPtool, a software tool
that “aims to lower the entry barrier for looking into the code
running" on the AMD Platform Security Processor (PSP), officially
known as AMD Secure Technology, and other AMD subsystems. The PSP
serves similar functions to those of Intel’s Management Engine (ME)
processor
. Just
like the Intel ME, it is an attack on computer users' freedom. We hope
this tool will help in the development of free replacements or removal
processes for the PSP.






Spotify pursues emotional surveillance for global profit



From June 10 by Liz Pelly



Music is emotional, and so our listening often signals something
deeply personal and private. Today, this means music streaming
platforms are in a unique position within the greater platform
economy: they have troves of data related to our emotional states,
moods, and feelings. It’s a matter of unprecedented access to our
interior lives, which is buffered by the flimsy illusion of
privacy. When a user chooses, for example, a “private listening”
session on Spotify, the effect is to make them feel that it’s a
one-way relation between person and machine. Of course, that
personalization process is Spotify’s way of selling users on its
product. But, as it turns out, in a move that should not surprise
anyone at this point, Spotify has been selling access to that
listening data to multinational corporations.



Don't let them harvest your emotional information! Instead, help
better services powered by free, distributed software like
libre.fm grow.






Behind the scenes of Purism's all-free software video production



From June 12 by François Téchené



At Purism, they aim to promote privacy and freedom through the use of
free software (and they see it as ethical software). In this blog,
they describe the process of producing a commercial clip using only
free software, including GIMP, Magic Lantern, MLV-App, and more.






Replicant contributors meeting on July 27-28 in France



From June 18 by GNUtoo



A Replicant contributors meeting will take place in or near Paris on
the 27th and 28th of July. Organizers are still looking for a place to
host the meeting, which will be open to anyone who contributes or
wants to contribute to the Replicant project, and will likely be
conducted in English.






Blender is free software



From June 8 by Ton Roosendaal



Did you know: the Blender 3D creation suite is free software, forever!
It is free to use for everyone. Free to use for any purpose, also
commercially. Blender is free to share with others, it is free to
study Blender’s sources and free to make new versions.






GNU Radio used to track the tagged orangutans in the Bornean jungle



From June 4 by RTL-SDR.com admin



To ensure the ongoing safety of endangered orangutans in Borneo, NGOs,
charities and rescue centers have been using RF tags on rehabilitated
orangutans that have released back into the wild. One limitation of
the system is a limited tracking range. To create a heatmap of
orangutan positions, researcher Dirk Gorissen used GNU Radio to create
a DSP algorithm combining peak detection, cross correlation with a
known template of the signal, and a phase locked loop.






The 2019 SeaGL Call for Proposals is open!



From June 24 by SeaGL



The 2019 Seattle GNU/Linux Conference is scheduled for November 15th
and 16th at Seattle Central College. They'll be accepting proposals
through August 11, 2019, and they welcome speakers of all backgrounds
and levels of experience -- even if you’ve never spoken at a technical
conference. If you’re excited about free software technologies or
communities, then they want to hear from you!






Register and submit talks for the GNU Hackers Meeting 2019



From April 16 by GNU Hackers Meeting organizers



Twelve years after its first edition in Orense, the GNU Hackers
Meeting is back to Spain! This time, we will be gathering in the nice
city of Madrid for hacking, learning and meeting each other. The
meeting will be held at Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería de
Sistemas Informáticos (ETSISI), which is part of the Universidad
Politécnica de Madrid. Learn how to register and submit talks at the
link below.






GNOME Foundation 2018 annual report



From June 27 by the GNOME Foundation



What a wonderful year 2018 was! We are very excited to share with you
some of our best moments, achievements, and great conferences/events
which happened throughout the year in our annual
report
.






GNOME Asia Summit 2019 to be held in Gresik, Indonesia



From June 17 by GNOME Foundation



The GNOME Foundation is pleased to announce that GNOME Asia Summit
2019 will take place in Gresik, Indonesia between October 11-13 at the
Universitas Muhammadiyah Gresik (UMG). The GNOME Asia 2019 Summit will
consist of two conference days and one day of workshops, in order to
encourage more contribution by GNOME.Asia participants to core areas
of GNOME.






Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory



Tens of thousands of people visit 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, July 5, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:






LibrePlanet featured resource: Making money as a libre software programmer



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 Making money as a libre software
programmer, which provides information about how to separate out the
"free" from the "libre" in your professional life as a free software
supporter. 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 campaigns@fsf.org.
