### Better than Zoom: Try these free software tools for staying in touch

*From April 3rd*

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an enormous amount of changes in how
people work, play, and communicate. By now, many of us have settled
into the routine of using remote communication or videoconferencing
tools to keep in touch with our friends and family. In times like
these, it becomes all the more important to remember that tools like
Zoom, Slack, and Facebook Messenger are not benign public services,
and while the sentiment they've expressed to the global community in
responding to the crisis may be sincere, it hasn't addressed the
fundamental ethical issues with any piece of proprietary software.

There's no better time than the present to insist on using ethical
software in your remote communication with your friends and family --
and doing so will also spread the reach and the message of free
software! This article lists video, audio, text, and other
communication tools that will treat you and your loved ones with the
respect you deserve.

### Staying "safe" while you stream: DBD's tips on living DRM-free during quarantine

*From April 7th*

As most of us are cooped up in our homes due to the ongoing COVID-19
pandemic, it's somewhat natural that we turn to online movies, music,
and other media to help pass the time. For most people, this involves
turning to Internet streaming for convenient, "all-in-one" services
that promise an endless array of recommendations to while away the
hours. "Binging" is all well and good every once in a while, but we
should remain careful that the ways we're getting our media don't come
with compromises to our freedom.

As we've mentioned before, Netflix and other giant media providers are
responsible for keeping the practice of DRM (Digital Restrictions
Management) alive, and it's important not to provide them with the
subscription fees they need to keep going. It's also important, even
under less dire circumstances, to support businesses and Web sites
that provide DRM-free media, and to promote them to our friends. So to
help provide you with a plethora of DRM-free and often gratis places
to stream from while keeping your rights, here's a few choice
selections from our [Guide to DRM-free
Living](https://www.defectivebydesign.org/guide).

### How to livestream a conference in just under a week

*From April 16th*

For the first time ever, LibrePlanet 2020 was a fully virtual
conference due to ongoing issues caused by the coronavirus
pandemic. In our last week of preparations before the live event,
increasingly disturbing news related to the virus made us realize we
could not responsibly hold our usual conference on software freedom in
person while protecting the safety of our participants and their
communities. So we turned everything around to eventually bring 35
free software presentations to our community through the filter of a
computer screen. After the conference, we had many people writing to
ask us for more details about what we used to do it, so we wanted to
take this opportunity to share how we were able to create a fully free
interactive and educational virtual experience.

*

### Summer internships at the FSF! Apply by May 10

*From April 21st*

The FSF is looking for interns to spend the summer contributing to
work in one of three areas: campaigns, licensing, or with our tech
team.

While in-office intern positions here in Boston are typically
preferred, due to COVID-19, this summer the FSF is only hosting remote
interns. As such, applicants from anywhere in the world will be
considered.

*

### Jitsi Meet features update, April 2020

*From April 7th by by Saúl Ibarra Corretgé*

Jitsi is the free software videoconferencing tool the FSF chose to
livestream and record the LibrePlanet 2020 conference. This post
details some of the most recent updates making Jitsi easier to use.

*

### Your FSF membership makes timely, important work possible

*From April 22nd*

One of the things we learned from the annual member meeting that took
place as part of the all-online LibrePlanet 2020 conference is that it
is good to share what we are working on. FSF associate members are at
the core of our community, so we'd like to share some of the things
we're initiating, things that are on our minds, and how you can get
more involved! (Not a member yet? There are more exciting reasons than
ever to [join the FSF](https://my.fsf.org/join)!)

### ICANN rejects the sale of Public Interest Registry (PIR) and the .org top-level domain

*From May 1st by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
Numbers (ICANN)*

Today, the ICANN Board made the decision to reject the proposed change
of control and entity conversion request that Public Interest Registry
(PIR) submitted to ICANN.

After completing extensive due diligence, the ICANN Board finds that
withholding consent of the transfer of PIR from the Internet Society
(ISOC) to Ethos Capital is reasonable, and the right thing to do.

This is terrific news: for twenty years, .Org has been the online home
for nonprofits, NGOs, and community-based groups around the world. It
serves both those organizations and the public, helping navigate and
support trust, information and resource sharing, and advocacy. The FSF
was one of nearly 900 organizations that signed a statement opposing
the transfer. You can find more information on the fight against the
proposed change at .

### The ACLU addresses tech-assisted contact-tracing against the COVID-19 pandemic

*From April 16th by Daniel Kahn Gillmor*

The ACLU [has released a
whitepaper](https://www.aclu.org/report/aclu-white-paper-principles-technology-assisted-contact-tracing)
discussing how to evaluate some novel cryptographic schemes that are
being considered to provide technology-assisted contact-tracing in the
face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The document offers guidelines for thinking about potential schemes
like this, and what kinds of safeguards we need to expect and demand
from these systems so that we might try to address the (hopefully
temporary) crisis of the pandemic without also creating a permanent
crisis for civil liberties.

*

### Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE): Any coronavirus tracking app must be used voluntarily and be free software

*From April 2nd by FSFE*

The FSFE demands that the use of tracking technologies that aim at
breaking the chains of disease infection may only be promoted on a
voluntary basis, fundamental rights must be respected and the software
must be published under a free software license.

*

### FSFE: NGI Pointer begins funding calls for projects designed to improve the Internet

*From April 27th by FSFE*

The FSFE has joined the Advisory Board of NGI Pointer, one of the
projects within the European Commission's Next Generation Internet
(“NGI”) initiative. By doing so, the FSFE expands the scope of our
work for the NGI initiative, adding our support for NGI Pointer to our
current work with NGI Zero.

NGI Pointer is an initiative from the European Commission designed to
provide funding and expertise to free software projects that can
improve the Internet as a platform. The FSFE has joined its Advisory
Board to provide assistance to these participating projects. The first
call for applications to join NGI Pointer is now open until June 1,
2020.

### Tackling the beast: Using GNU Health to help the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic

*From March 31st by Dr. Luis Falcón*

The world is facing a tremendous health, economic and social crisis. A
minuscule, 50-nanometer in diameter structure is putting the most
powerful world economies on their knees, and hundred of thousands are
tragically succumbing to COVID-19.

This article is an invitation to governments to embrace GNU Health and
free software for the sake of their public healthcare system in the
context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For those of you who already use GNU Health, take this article as some
sort of guideline to optimize your implementation and day-by-day
usage. Even though it focuses on COVID-19 disease, most topics will
apply to any GNU Health implementation.

### Software freedom work during the pandemic

*From April 21st by Deb Nicholson*

Most of us have already gotten many, many emails talking about how
fast food chains, companies that sell sweatpants and soap makers are
"here for you" especially, "in these troubled times." Some of those
are heartfelt emails assuring you that their company is making
donations to nonprofits or that they are really, really, washing
everything. Nonprofits, while we are also "here for you" especially,
"in these troubled times" generally have more to do during a crisis so
we've been focusing on our work while going a bit light on our
marketing.

Conservancy's communities have responded to the global pandemic in
several ways. Firstly, we are all grateful for the global, remote free
software community -- particularly as many key events are being
cancelled or transforming into online experiences. Many of us are
looking at how to better serve the people who count on us, either by
improving the tools we offer or our support, or both. Here's a
sampling of what our projects are doing during the pandemic.

### Mass school closures in the wake of the coronavirus are driving a new wave of student surveillance

*From April 1st by Drew Harwell*

The all-seeing eye of proprietary surveillance technology is invading
college students' homes, bedrooms, and computers via mandatory "online
proctoring" for tests. Companies retain rights to a horrifying amount
of student data, and as is standard with proprietary software,
students and families have no control or even the right to know what
information is being harvested.

### Netherlands commits to free software by default

*From April 24th by Nico Rikken*

In an open letter to the Parliament, the Dutch minister for internal
affairs Raymond Knops commits to a "free software by default" policy
and underlines its benefits for society. Current market regulations
shall be reworded to allow publishing free software by the government.

### How did free software build a social movement?

*From April 14th by Justin W. Flory*

The free software movement is rooted to origins in the 1980s. As part
of a talk I gave with my colleague and friend Mike Nolan at FOSDEM
2020, we analyzed how the free software movement emerged as a response
to a changing digital world in three different phases. This blog post
is an exploration and framing of that history to understand how the
social movement we call “free software” was constructed.

### RMS article: “Saying No to unjust computing even once is helpful”

*From May 4th by Richard M. Stallman*

In this article on , free software movement founder Richard
Stallman (RMS) corrects a common misunderstanding: that utilizing any
nonfree software at all is to be regarded as complete capitulation and
grounds for excommunication from free software circles. RMS says that
“Nothing could be further from the truth,” and the Free Software
Foundation (FSF) agrees.

However, every step towards complete freedom -- whether it means
installing and teaching yourself a new free program, or refusing an
activity that requires a proprietary program -- is an important
one. Furthermore, every refusal to engage in a Zoom or Skype chat is a
teachable moment, giving you an opportunity to educate your friends,
colleagues, or loved ones about why software freedom matters.

### Contributing from afar: My internship from Italy with the campaigns team

*From April 13th by Leonardo Luca Vignini*

Hi, everyone! My name is Leonardo Luca Vignini. I was born and still
live in Italy, in a city called Imola, near Bologna. Currently, I'm an
intern at the FSF, and, in particular, I'm working in the campaigns
team. I'm learning how to manage contacts with CiviCRM, and I write to
journalists and organizations to inform them about our campaigns, and
I'm learning how the FSF works to spread the word and sensitize people
about free software. Through these activities, I'm also deepening my
understanding of some aspects about free software that I didn't know.

### The cataloging of free software

*From April 3rd by Lorenzo L. Ancora*

The [Free Software
Directory](https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Main_Page) is a
collaborative catalog of software aimed to be the primary source for
representing all free software. Each free program has its own page in
the Directory from which it is possible to study the evolution it has
undergone in both technological and legal terms through a
chronological system similar to that of Wikipedia. This is an account
from one of the Directory's volunteer administrators on what it's like
to work on the Directory, and why it's difficult but rewarding work,
of great importance to the free software movement.

### GNU MediaGoblin: We're still here!

*From April 7th by Ben Sturmfels*

While development on GNU MediaGoblin has slowed over the last few
years, work has continued steadily, with significant improvements such
as multi-resolution video (Vijeth Aradhya), video subtitles (Saksham)
and a bunch of minor improvements and bug-fixes. Like most
community-driven free software projects, progress only happens when
people show up and make it happen.

### GNOME Foundation and Endless launch inaugural Community Engagement Challenge

*From April 7th by GNOME Foundation*

The GNOME Foundation, in conjunction with Endless, is proud to
announce that starting April 9th, entries will be accepted for the
inaugural Community Engagement Challenge, an exciting new opportunity
to submit a project that will engage beginning coders with the free
software community.

The Challenge is a three-phase competition designed to generate
stimulating ideas that will help connect the next generation of coders
to the free software community and keep them active and engaged for
years to come. Up to $65,000 in cash prizes are available to the
individuals or teams with the best entries.

### GNU Guix 1.1.0 released

*From April 15th by Ludovic Courtès and Marius Bakke*

We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Guix version 1.1.0! The
release comes with ISO-9660 installation images, a virtual machine
image, and with tarballs to install the package manager on top of your
GNU/Linux distro, either from source or from binaries. Guix users can
update by running guix pull.

### Join Turkish free software activists for ÖzgürKon, May 16-17!

*From April 11th by Özcan O?uz*

ÖzgürKon is an international online conference, organized by Özgür
Yaz?l?m Derne?i. 2020 has brought us an unexpected pandemic which no
one was prepared for. COVID-19 has created an event vacuum since
people are no longer able to gather physically. ÖzgürKon is aimed to
fill this void by bringing the worldwide free software community
together in virtual space and underlining the importance of free
software in the light of current developments.

Turkish free software activists have a unique perspective on the
necessity of software freedom, and the activists behind ÖzgürKon have
been involved in efforts to help Anatolian minorities preserve their
culture and language. [Their talk on the subject from LibrePlanet
2020](https://media.libreplanet.org/u/libreplanet/m/free-software-for-minorities-in-turkey-in-their-own-languages)
is now available to watch!

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

Tens of thousands of people visit 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, May 8, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:

### LibrePlanet featured resource: Remote Communication

Every month on [the LibrePlanet
wiki](https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Main_Page), we highlight one
resource that is interesting and useful -- often one that could use
your help.

For this month, we are highlighting Remote Communication, which
provides information about free software communication tools that are
urgently needed to replace commonly-used proprietary software like
Zoom and Slack. You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this
important resource.

Virtual LibrePlanet raffle: Encourage others to join FSF and win prizes!



From April 30th



Even though LibrePlanet was held online this year, we still have the
raffle prizes generously donated by Technoethical, Vikings, JMP.chat,
No Starch Press, and ThinkPenguin. For a limited time, you have a
chance to win these prizes while helping us grow the free software
community and supporting next year's LibrePlanet conference.



From April 30, 2020 to May 31, 2020, the FSF will be holding an
associate membership referral drive. You will find your personal
referrer link on the dashboard after logging in at

referral link, you can win a prize!






Better than Zoom: Try these free software tools for staying in touch



From April 3rd



The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an enormous amount of changes in how
people work, play, and communicate. By now, many of us have settled
into the routine of using remote communication or videoconferencing
tools to keep in touch with our friends and family. In times like
these, it becomes all the more important to remember that tools like
Zoom, Slack, and Facebook Messenger are not benign public services,
and while the sentiment they've expressed to the global community in
responding to the crisis may be sincere, it hasn't addressed the
fundamental ethical issues with any piece of proprietary software.



There's no better time than the present to insist on using ethical
software in your remote communication with your friends and family --
and doing so will also spread the reach and the message of free
software! This article lists video, audio, text, and other
communication tools that will treat you and your loved ones with the
respect you deserve.






Staying "safe" while you stream: DBD's tips on living DRM-free during quarantine



From April 7th



As most of us are cooped up in our homes due to the ongoing COVID-19
pandemic, it's somewhat natural that we turn to online movies, music,
and other media to help pass the time. For most people, this involves
turning to Internet streaming for convenient, "all-in-one" services
that promise an endless array of recommendations to while away the
hours. "Binging" is all well and good every once in a while, but we
should remain careful that the ways we're getting our media don't come
with compromises to our freedom.



As we've mentioned before, Netflix and other giant media providers are
responsible for keeping the practice of DRM (Digital Restrictions
Management) alive, and it's important not to provide them with the
subscription fees they need to keep going. It's also important, even
under less dire circumstances, to support businesses and Web sites
that provide DRM-free media, and to promote them to our friends. So to
help provide you with a plethora of DRM-free and often gratis places
to stream from while keeping your rights, here's a few choice
selections from our Guide to DRM-free
Living
.






How to livestream a conference in just under a week



From April 16th



For the first time ever, LibrePlanet 2020 was a fully virtual
conference due to ongoing issues caused by the coronavirus
pandemic. In our last week of preparations before the live event,
increasingly disturbing news related to the virus made us realize we
could not responsibly hold our usual conference on software freedom in
person while protecting the safety of our participants and their
communities. So we turned everything around to eventually bring 35
free software presentations to our community through the filter of a
computer screen. After the conference, we had many people writing to
ask us for more details about what we used to do it, so we wanted to
take this opportunity to share how we were able to create a fully free
interactive and educational virtual experience.






Summer internships at the FSF! Apply by May 10



From April 21st



The FSF is looking for interns to spend the summer contributing to
work in one of three areas: campaigns, licensing, or with our tech
team.



While in-office intern positions here in Boston are typically
preferred, due to COVID-19, this summer the FSF is only hosting remote
interns. As such, applicants from anywhere in the world will be
considered.






Jitsi Meet features update, April 2020



From April 7th by by Saúl Ibarra Corretgé



Jitsi is the free software videoconferencing tool the FSF chose to
livestream and record the LibrePlanet 2020 conference. This post
details some of the most recent updates making Jitsi easier to use.






Your FSF membership makes timely, important work possible



From April 22nd



One of the things we learned from the annual member meeting that took
place as part of the all-online LibrePlanet 2020 conference is that it
is good to share what we are working on. FSF associate members are at
the core of our community, so we'd like to share some of the things
we're initiating, things that are on our minds, and how you can get
more involved! (Not a member yet? There are more exciting reasons than
ever to join the FSF!)






ICANN rejects the sale of Public Interest Registry (PIR) and the .org top-level domain



From May 1st by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
Numbers (ICANN)



Today, the ICANN Board made the decision to reject the proposed change
of control and entity conversion request that Public Interest Registry
(PIR) submitted to ICANN.



After completing extensive due diligence, the ICANN Board finds that
withholding consent of the transfer of PIR from the Internet Society
(ISOC) to Ethos Capital is reasonable, and the right thing to do.



This is terrific news: for twenty years, .Org has been the online home
for nonprofits, NGOs, and community-based groups around the world. It
serves both those organizations and the public, helping navigate and
support trust, information and resource sharing, and advocacy. The FSF
was one of nearly 900 organizations that signed a statement opposing
the transfer. You can find more information on the fight against the
proposed change at https://savedotorg.org/.






The ACLU addresses tech-assisted contact-tracing against the COVID-19 pandemic



From April 16th by Daniel Kahn Gillmor



The ACLU has released a
whitepaper

discussing how to evaluate some novel cryptographic schemes that are
being considered to provide technology-assisted contact-tracing in the
face of the COVID-19 pandemic.



The document offers guidelines for thinking about potential schemes
like this, and what kinds of safeguards we need to expect and demand
from these systems so that we might try to address the (hopefully
temporary) crisis of the pandemic without also creating a permanent
crisis for civil liberties.






Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE): Any coronavirus tracking app must be used voluntarily and be free software



From April 2nd by FSFE



The FSFE demands that the use of tracking technologies that aim at
breaking the chains of disease infection may only be promoted on a
voluntary basis, fundamental rights must be respected and the software
must be published under a free software license.






FSFE: NGI Pointer begins funding calls for projects designed to improve the Internet



From April 27th by FSFE



The FSFE has joined the Advisory Board of NGI Pointer, one of the
projects within the European Commission's Next Generation Internet
(“NGI”) initiative. By doing so, the FSFE expands the scope of our
work for the NGI initiative, adding our support for NGI Pointer to our
current work with NGI Zero.



NGI Pointer is an initiative from the European Commission designed to
provide funding and expertise to free software projects that can
improve the Internet as a platform. The FSFE has joined its Advisory
Board to provide assistance to these participating projects. The first
call for applications to join NGI Pointer is now open until June 1,
2020.






Tackling the beast: Using GNU Health to help the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic



From March 31st by Dr. Luis Falcón



The world is facing a tremendous health, economic and social crisis. A
minuscule, 50-nanometer in diameter structure is putting the most
powerful world economies on their knees, and hundred of thousands are
tragically succumbing to COVID-19.



This article is an invitation to governments to embrace GNU Health and
free software for the sake of their public healthcare system in the
context of the COVID-19 pandemic.



For those of you who already use GNU Health, take this article as some
sort of guideline to optimize your implementation and day-by-day
usage. Even though it focuses on COVID-19 disease, most topics will
apply to any GNU Health implementation.






Software freedom work during the pandemic



From April 21st by Deb Nicholson



Most of us have already gotten many, many emails talking about how
fast food chains, companies that sell sweatpants and soap makers are
"here for you" especially, "in these troubled times." Some of those
are heartfelt emails assuring you that their company is making
donations to nonprofits or that they are really, really, washing
everything. Nonprofits, while we are also "here for you" especially,
"in these troubled times" generally have more to do during a crisis so
we've been focusing on our work while going a bit light on our
marketing.



Conservancy's communities have responded to the global pandemic in
several ways. Firstly, we are all grateful for the global, remote free
software community -- particularly as many key events are being
cancelled or transforming into online experiences. Many of us are
looking at how to better serve the people who count on us, either by
improving the tools we offer or our support, or both. Here's a
sampling of what our projects are doing during the pandemic.






Mass school closures in the wake of the coronavirus are driving a new wave of student surveillance



From April 1st by Drew Harwell



The all-seeing eye of proprietary surveillance technology is invading
college students' homes, bedrooms, and computers via mandatory "online
proctoring" for tests. Companies retain rights to a horrifying amount
of student data, and as is standard with proprietary software,
students and families have no control or even the right to know what
information is being harvested.






Netherlands commits to free software by default



From April 24th by Nico Rikken



In an open letter to the Parliament, the Dutch minister for internal
affairs Raymond Knops commits to a "free software by default" policy
and underlines its benefits for society. Current market regulations
shall be reworded to allow publishing free software by the government.






How did free software build a social movement?



From April 14th by Justin W. Flory



The free software movement is rooted to origins in the 1980s. As part
of a talk I gave with my colleague and friend Mike Nolan at FOSDEM
2020, we analyzed how the free software movement emerged as a response
to a changing digital world in three different phases. This blog post
is an exploration and framing of that history to understand how the
social movement we call “free software” was constructed.






RMS article: “Saying No to unjust computing even once is helpful”



From May 4th by Richard M. Stallman



In this article on https://gnu.org, free software movement founder Richard
Stallman (RMS) corrects a common misunderstanding: that utilizing any
nonfree software at all is to be regarded as complete capitulation and
grounds for excommunication from free software circles. RMS says that
“Nothing could be further from the truth,” and the Free Software
Foundation (FSF) agrees.



However, every step towards complete freedom -- whether it means
installing and teaching yourself a new free program, or refusing an
activity that requires a proprietary program -- is an important
one. Furthermore, every refusal to engage in a Zoom or Skype chat is a
teachable moment, giving you an opportunity to educate your friends,
colleagues, or loved ones about why software freedom matters.






Contributing from afar: My internship from Italy with the campaigns team



From April 13th by Leonardo Luca Vignini



Hi, everyone! My name is Leonardo Luca Vignini. I was born and still
live in Italy, in a city called Imola, near Bologna. Currently, I'm an
intern at the FSF, and, in particular, I'm working in the campaigns
team. I'm learning how to manage contacts with CiviCRM, and I write to
journalists and organizations to inform them about our campaigns, and
I'm learning how the FSF works to spread the word and sensitize people
about free software. Through these activities, I'm also deepening my
understanding of some aspects about free software that I didn't know.






The cataloging of free software



From April 3rd by Lorenzo L. Ancora



The Free Software
Directory
is a
collaborative catalog of software aimed to be the primary source for
representing all free software. Each free program has its own page in
the Directory from which it is possible to study the evolution it has
undergone in both technological and legal terms through a
chronological system similar to that of Wikipedia. This is an account
from one of the Directory's volunteer administrators on what it's like
to work on the Directory, and why it's difficult but rewarding work,
of great importance to the free software movement.






GNU MediaGoblin: We're still here!



From April 7th by Ben Sturmfels



While development on GNU MediaGoblin has slowed over the last few
years, work has continued steadily, with significant improvements such
as multi-resolution video (Vijeth Aradhya), video subtitles (Saksham)
and a bunch of minor improvements and bug-fixes. Like most
community-driven free software projects, progress only happens when
people show up and make it happen.






GNOME Foundation and Endless launch inaugural Community Engagement Challenge



From April 7th by GNOME Foundation

### Better than Zoom: Try these free software tools for staying in touch

*From April 3rd*

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an enormous amount of changes in how
people work, play, and communicate. By now, many of us have settled
into the routine of using remote communication or videoconferencing
tools to keep in touch with our friends and family. In times like
these, it becomes all the more important to remember that tools like
Zoom, Slack, and Facebook Messenger are not benign public services,
and while the sentiment they've expressed to the global community in
responding to the crisis may be sincere, it hasn't addressed the
fundamental ethical issues with any piece of proprietary software.

There's no better time than the present to insist on using ethical
software in your remote communication with your friends and family --
and doing so will also spread the reach and the message of free
software! This article lists video, audio, text, and other
communication tools that will treat you and your loved ones with the
respect you deserve.

*

### Staying "safe" while you stream: DBD's tips on living DRM-free during quarantine

*From April 7th*

As most of us are cooped up in our homes due to the ongoing COVID-19
pandemic, it's somewhat natural that we turn to online movies, music,
and other media to help pass the time. For most people, this involves
turning to Internet streaming for convenient, "all-in-one" services
that promise an endless array of recommendations to while away the
hours. "Binging" is all well and good every once in a while, but we
should remain careful that the ways we're getting our media don't come
with compromises to our freedom.

As we've mentioned before, Netflix and other giant media providers are
responsible for keeping the practice of DRM (Digital Restrictions
Management) alive, and it's important not to provide them with the
subscription fees they need to keep going. It's also important, even
under less dire circumstances, to support businesses and Web sites
that provide DRM-free media, and to promote them to our friends. So to
help provide you with a plethora of DRM-free and often gratis places
to stream from while keeping your rights, here's a few choice
selections from our [Guide to DRM-free
Living](https://www.defectivebydesign.org/guide).

*

### How to livestream a conference in just under a week

*From April 16th*

For the first time ever, LibrePlanet 2020 was a fully virtual
conference due to ongoing issues caused by the coronavirus
pandemic. In our last week of preparations before the live event,
increasingly disturbing news related to the virus made us realize we
could not responsibly hold our usual conference on software freedom in
person while protecting the safety of our participants and their
communities. So we turned everything around to eventually bring 35
free software presentations to our community through the filter of a
computer screen. After the conference, we had many people writing to
ask us for more details about what we used to do it, so we wanted to
take this opportunity to share how we were able to create a fully free
interactive and educational virtual experience.

*

### Summer internships at the FSF! Apply by May 10

*From April 21st*

The FSF is looking for interns to spend the summer contributing to
work in one of three areas: campaigns, licensing, or with our tech
team.

While in-office intern positions here in Boston are typically
preferred, due to COVID-19, this summer the FSF is only hosting remote
interns. As such, applicants from anywhere in the world will be
considered.

*

### Jitsi Meet features update, April 2020

*From April 7th by by Saúl Ibarra Corretgé*

Jitsi is the free software videoconferencing tool the FSF chose to
livestream and record the LibrePlanet 2020 conference. This post
details some of the most recent updates making Jitsi easier to use.

*

### Your FSF membership makes timely, important work possible

*From April 22nd*

One of the things we learned from the annual member meeting that took
place as part of the all-online LibrePlanet 2020 conference is that it
is good to share what we are working on. FSF associate members are at
the core of our community, so we'd like to share some of the things
we're initiating, things that are on our minds, and how you can get
more involved! (Not a member yet? There are more exciting reasons than
ever to [join the FSF](https://my.fsf.org/join)!)

### ICANN rejects the sale of Public Interest Registry (PIR) and the .org top-level domain

*From May 1st by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
Numbers (ICANN)*

Today, the ICANN Board made the decision to reject the proposed change
of control and entity conversion request that Public Interest Registry
(PIR) submitted to ICANN.

After completing extensive due diligence, the ICANN Board finds that
withholding consent of the transfer of PIR from the Internet Society
(ISOC) to Ethos Capital is reasonable, and the right thing to do.

This is terrific news: for twenty years, .Org has been the online home
for nonprofits, NGOs, and community-based groups around the world. It
serves both those organizations and the public, helping navigate and
support trust, information and resource sharing, and advocacy. The FSF
was one of nearly 900 organizations that signed a statement opposing
the transfer. You can find more information on the fight against the
proposed change at .

### The ACLU addresses tech-assisted contact-tracing against the COVID-19 pandemic

*From April 16th by Daniel Kahn Gillmor*

The ACLU [has released a
whitepaper](https://www.aclu.org/report/aclu-white-paper-principles-technology-assisted-contact-tracing)
discussing how to evaluate some novel cryptographic schemes that are
being considered to provide technology-assisted contact-tracing in the
face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The document offers guidelines for thinking about potential schemes
like this, and what kinds of safeguards we need to expect and demand
from these systems so that we might try to address the (hopefully
temporary) crisis of the pandemic without also creating a permanent
crisis for civil liberties.

*

### Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE): Any coronavirus tracking app must be used voluntarily and be free software

*From April 2nd by FSFE*

The FSFE demands that the use of tracking technologies that aim at
breaking the chains of disease infection may only be promoted on a
voluntary basis, fundamental rights must be respected and the software
must be published under a free software license.

*

### FSFE: NGI Pointer begins funding calls for projects designed to improve the Internet

*From April 27th by FSFE*

The FSFE has joined the Advisory Board of NGI Pointer, one of the
projects within the European Commission's Next Generation Internet
(“NGI”) initiative. By doing so, the FSFE expands the scope of our
work for the NGI initiative, adding our support for NGI Pointer to our
current work with NGI Zero.

NGI Pointer is an initiative from the European Commission designed to
provide funding and expertise to free software projects that can
improve the Internet as a platform. The FSFE has joined its Advisory
Board to provide assistance to these participating projects. The first
call for applications to join NGI Pointer is now open until June 1,
2020.

### Tackling the beast: Using GNU Health to help the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic

*From March 31st by Dr. Luis Falcón*

The world is facing a tremendous health, economic and social crisis. A
minuscule, 50-nanometer in diameter structure is putting the most
powerful world economies on their knees, and hundred of thousands are
tragically succumbing to COVID-19.

This article is an invitation to governments to embrace GNU Health and
free software for the sake of their public healthcare system in the
context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For those of you who already use GNU Health, take this article as some
sort of guideline to optimize your implementation and day-by-day
usage. Even though it focuses on COVID-19 disease, most topics will
apply to any GNU Health implementation.

### Software freedom work during the pandemic

*From April 21st by Deb Nicholson*

Most of us have already gotten many, many emails talking about how
fast food chains, companies that sell sweatpants and soap makers are
"here for you" especially, "in these troubled times." Some of those
are heartfelt emails assuring you that their company is making
donations to nonprofits or that they are really, really, washing
everything. Nonprofits, while we are also "here for you" especially,
"in these troubled times" generally have more to do during a crisis so
we've been focusing on our work while going a bit light on our
marketing.

Conservancy's communities have responded to the global pandemic in
several ways. Firstly, we are all grateful for the global, remote free
software community -- particularly as many key events are being
cancelled or transforming into online experiences. Many of us are
looking at how to better serve the people who count on us, either by
improving the tools we offer or our support, or both. Here's a
sampling of what our projects are doing during the pandemic.

*

### Mass school closures in the wake of the coronavirus are driving a new wave of student surveillance

*From April 1st by Drew Harwell*

The all-seeing eye of proprietary surveillance technology is invading
college students' homes, bedrooms, and computers via mandatory "online
proctoring" for tests. Companies retain rights to a horrifying amount
of student data, and as is standard with proprietary software,
students and families have no control or even the right to know what
information is being harvested.

*

### Netherlands commits to free software by default

*From April 24th by Nico Rikken*

In an open letter to the Parliament, the Dutch minister for internal
affairs Raymond Knops commits to a "free software by default" policy
and underlines its benefits for society. Current market regulations
shall be reworded to allow publishing free software by the government.

*

### How did free software build a social movement?

*From April 14th by Justin W. Flory*

The free software movement is rooted to origins in the 1980s. As part
of a talk I gave with my colleague and friend Mike Nolan at FOSDEM
2020, we analyzed how the free software movement emerged as a response
to a changing digital world in three different phases. This blog post
is an exploration and framing of that history to understand how the
social movement we call “free software” was constructed.

*

### RMS article: “Saying No to unjust computing even once is helpful”

*From May 4th by Richard M. Stallman*

In this article on , free software movement founder Richard
Stallman (RMS) corrects a common misunderstanding: that utilizing any
nonfree software at all is to be regarded as complete capitulation and
grounds for excommunication from free software circles. RMS says that
“Nothing could be further from the truth,” and the Free Software
Foundation (FSF) agrees.

However, every step towards complete freedom -- whether it means
installing and teaching yourself a new free program, or refusing an
activity that requires a proprietary program -- is an important
one. Furthermore, every refusal to engage in a Zoom or Skype chat is a
teachable moment, giving you an opportunity to educate your friends,
colleagues, or loved ones about why software freedom matters.

### Join Turkish free software activists for ÖzgürKon, May 16-17!

*From April 11th by Özcan O?uz*

ÖzgürKon is an international online conference, organized by Özgür
Yaz?l?m Derne?i. 2020 has brought us an unexpected pandemic which no
one was prepared for. COVID-19 has created an event vacuum since
people are no longer able to gather physically. ÖzgürKon is aimed to
fill this void by bringing the worldwide free software community
together in virtual space and underlining the importance of free
software in the light of current developments.

Turkish free software activists have a unique perspective on the
necessity of software freedom, and the activists behind ÖzgürKon have
been involved in efforts to help Anatolian minorities preserve their
culture and language. [Their talk on the subject from LibrePlanet
2020](https://media.libreplanet.org/u/libreplanet/m/free-software-for-minorities-in-turkey-in-their-own-languages)

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

Tens of thousands of people visit 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, May 8, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:

### LibrePlanet featured resource: Remote Communication

Every month on [the LibrePlanet
wiki](https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Main_Page), we highlight one
resource that is interesting and useful -- often one that could use
your help.

For this month, we are highlighting Remote Communication, which
provides information about free software communication tools that are
urgently needed to replace commonly-used proprietary software like
Zoom and Slack. You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this
important resource.

associate membership referral drive. You will find your personal
referrer link on the dashboard after logging in at
https://my.fsf.org/. If two or more new members sign up using your
referral link, you can win a prize!






Better than Zoom: Try these free software tools for staying in touch



From April 3rd



The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an enormous amount of changes in how
people work, play, and communicate. By now, many of us have settled
into the routine of using remote communication or videoconferencing
tools to keep in touch with our friends and family. In times like
these, it becomes all the more important to remember that tools like
Zoom, Slack, and Facebook Messenger are not benign public services,
and while the sentiment they've expressed to the global community in
responding to the crisis may be sincere, it hasn't addressed the
fundamental ethical issues with any piece of proprietary software.



There's no better time than the present to insist on using ethical
software in your remote communication with your friends and family --
and doing so will also spread the reach and the message of free
software! This article lists video, audio, text, and other
communication tools that will treat you and your loved ones with the
respect you deserve.






Staying "safe" while you stream: DBD's tips on living DRM-free during quarantine



From April 7th



As most of us are cooped up in our homes due to the ongoing COVID-19
pandemic, it's somewhat natural that we turn to online movies, music,
and other media to help pass the time. For most people, this involves
turning to Internet streaming for convenient, "all-in-one" services
that promise an endless array of recommendations to while away the
hours. "Binging" is all well and good every once in a while, but we
should remain careful that the ways we're getting our media don't come
with compromises to our freedom.



As we've mentioned before, Netflix and other giant media providers are
responsible for keeping the practice of DRM (Digital Restrictions
Management) alive, and it's important not to provide them with the
subscription fees they need to keep going. It's also important, even
under less dire circumstances, to support businesses and Web sites
that provide DRM-free media, and to promote them to our friends. So to
help provide you with a plethora of DRM-free and often gratis places
to stream from while keeping your rights, here's a few choice
selections from our Guide to DRM-free
Living
.






How to livestream a conference in just under a week



From April 16th



For the first time ever, LibrePlanet 2020 was a fully virtual
conference due to ongoing issues caused by the coronavirus
pandemic. In our last week of preparations before the live event,
increasingly disturbing news related to the virus made us realize we
could not responsibly hold our usual conference on software freedom in
person while protecting the safety of our participants and their
communities. So we turned everything around to eventually bring 35
free software presentations to our community through the filter of a
computer screen. After the conference, we had many people writing to
ask us for more details about what we used to do it, so we wanted to
take this opportunity to share how we were able to create a fully free
interactive and educational virtual experience.






Summer internships at the FSF! Apply by May 10



From April 21st



The FSF is looking for interns to spend the summer contributing to
work in one of three areas: campaigns, licensing, or with our tech
team.



While in-office intern positions here in Boston are typically
preferred, due to COVID-19, this summer the FSF is only hosting remote
interns. As such, applicants from anywhere in the world will be
considered.






Jitsi Meet features update, April 2020



From April 7th by by Saúl Ibarra Corretgé



Jitsi is the free software videoconferencing tool the FSF chose to
livestream and record the LibrePlanet 2020 conference. This post
details some of the most recent updates making Jitsi easier to use.






Your FSF membership makes timely, important work possible



From April 22nd



One of the things we learned from the annual member meeting that took
place as part of the all-online LibrePlanet 2020 conference is that it
is good to share what we are working on. FSF associate members are at
the core of our community, so we'd like to share some of the things
we're initiating, things that are on our minds, and how you can get
more involved! (Not a member yet? There are more exciting reasons than
ever to join the FSF!)






ICANN rejects the sale of Public Interest Registry (PIR) and the .org top-level domain



From May 1st by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
Numbers (ICANN)



Today, the ICANN Board made the decision to reject the proposed change
of control and entity conversion request that Public Interest Registry
(PIR) submitted to ICANN.



After completing extensive due diligence, the ICANN Board finds that
withholding consent of the transfer of PIR from the Internet Society
(ISOC) to Ethos Capital is reasonable, and the right thing to do.



This is terrific news: for twenty years, .Org has been the online home
for nonprofits, NGOs, and community-based groups around the world. It
serves both those organizations and the public, helping navigate and
support trust, information and resource sharing, and advocacy. The FSF
was one of nearly 900 organizations that signed a statement opposing
the transfer. You can find more information on the fight against the
proposed change at https://savedotorg.org/.






The ACLU addresses tech-assisted contact-tracing against the COVID-19 pandemic



From April 16th by Daniel Kahn Gillmor



The ACLU has released a
whitepaper

discussing how to evaluate some novel cryptographic schemes that are
being considered to provide technology-assisted contact-tracing in the
face of the COVID-19 pandemic.



The document offers guidelines for thinking about potential schemes
like this, and what kinds of safeguards we need to expect and demand
from these systems so that we might try to address the (hopefully
temporary) crisis of the pandemic without also creating a permanent
crisis for civil liberties.






Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE): Any coronavirus tracking app must be used voluntarily and be free software



From April 2nd by FSFE



The FSFE demands that the use of tracking technologies that aim at
breaking the chains of disease infection may only be promoted on a
voluntary basis, fundamental rights must be respected and the software
must be published under a free software license.






FSFE: NGI Pointer begins funding calls for projects designed to improve the Internet



From April 27th by FSFE



The FSFE has joined the Advisory Board of NGI Pointer, one of the
projects within the European Commission's Next Generation Internet
(“NGI”) initiative. By doing so, the FSFE expands the scope of our
work for the NGI initiative, adding our support for NGI Pointer to our
current work with NGI Zero.



NGI Pointer is an initiative from the European Commission designed to
provide funding and expertise to free software projects that can
improve the Internet as a platform. The FSFE has joined its Advisory
Board to provide assistance to these participating projects. The first
call for applications to join NGI Pointer is now open until June 1,
2020.






Tackling the beast: Using GNU Health to help the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic



From March 31st by Dr. Luis Falcón



The world is facing a tremendous health, economic and social crisis. A
minuscule, 50-nanometer in diameter structure is putting the most
powerful world economies on their knees, and hundred of thousands are
tragically succumbing to COVID-19.



This article is an invitation to governments to embrace GNU Health and
free software for the sake of their public healthcare system in the
context of the COVID-19 pandemic.



For those of you who already use GNU Health, take this article as some
sort of guideline to optimize your implementation and day-by-day
usage. Even though it focuses on COVID-19 disease, most topics will
apply to any GNU Health implementation.






Software freedom work during the pandemic



From April 21st by Deb Nicholson



Most of us have already gotten many, many emails talking about how
fast food chains, companies that sell sweatpants and soap makers are
"here for you" especially, "in these troubled times." Some of those
are heartfelt emails assuring you that their company is making
donations to nonprofits or that they are really, really, washing
everything. Nonprofits, while we are also "here for you" especially,
"in these troubled times" generally have more to do during a crisis so
we've been focusing on our work while going a bit light on our
marketing.



Conservancy's communities have responded to the global pandemic in
several ways. Firstly, we are all grateful for the global, remote free
software community -- particularly as many key events are being
cancelled or transforming into online experiences. Many of us are
looking at how to better serve the people who count on us, either by
improving the tools we offer or our support, or both. Here's a
sampling of what our projects are doing during the pandemic.






Mass school closures in the wake of the coronavirus are driving a new wave of student surveillance



From April 1st by Drew Harwell



The all-seeing eye of proprietary surveillance technology is invading
college students' homes, bedrooms, and computers via mandatory "online
proctoring" for tests. Companies retain rights to a horrifying amount
of student data, and as is standard with proprietary software,
students and families have no control or even the right to know what
information is being harvested.






Netherlands commits to free software by default



From April 24th by Nico Rikken



In an open letter to the Parliament, the Dutch minister for internal
affairs Raymond Knops commits to a "free software by default" policy
and underlines its benefits for society. Current market regulations
shall be reworded to allow publishing free software by the government.






How did free software build a social movement?



From April 14th by Justin W. Flory



The free software movement is rooted to origins in the 1980s. As part
of a talk I gave with my colleague and friend Mike Nolan at FOSDEM
2020, we analyzed how the free software movement emerged as a response
to a changing digital world in three different phases. This blog post
is an exploration and framing of that history to understand how the
social movement we call “free software” was constructed.






RMS article: “Saying No to unjust computing even once is helpful”



From May 4th by Richard M. Stallman



In this article on https://gnu.org, free software movement founder Richard
Stallman (RMS) corrects a common misunderstanding: that utilizing any
nonfree software at all is to be regarded as complete capitulation and
grounds for excommunication from free software circles. RMS says that
“Nothing could be further from the truth,” and the Free Software
Foundation (FSF) agrees.



However, every step towards complete freedom -- whether it means
installing and teaching yourself a new free program, or refusing an
activity that requires a proprietary program -- is an important
one. Furthermore, every refusal to engage in a Zoom or Skype chat is a
teachable moment, giving you an opportunity to educate your friends,
colleagues, or loved ones about why software freedom matters.






Contributing from afar: My internship from Italy with the campaigns team



From April 13th by Leonardo Luca Vignini



Hi, everyone! My name is Leonardo Luca Vignini. I was born and still
live in Italy, in a city called Imola, near Bologna. Currently, I'm an
intern at the FSF, and, in particular, I'm working in the campaigns
team. I'm learning how to manage contacts with CiviCRM, and I write to
journalists and organizations to inform them about our campaigns, and
I'm learning how the FSF works to spread the word and sensitize people
about free software. Through these activities, I'm also deepening my
understanding of some aspects about free software that I didn't know.






The cataloging of free software



From April 3rd by Lorenzo L. Ancora



The Free Software
Directory
is a
collaborative catalog of software aimed to be the primary source for
representing all free software. Each free program has its own page in
the Directory from which it is possible to study the evolution it has
undergone in both technological and legal terms through a
chronological system similar to that of Wikipedia. This is an account
from one of the Directory's volunteer administrators on what it's like
to work on the Directory, and why it's difficult but rewarding work,
of great importance to the free software movement.






GNU MediaGoblin: We're still here!



From April 7th by Ben Sturmfels



While development on GNU MediaGoblin has slowed over the last few
years, work has continued steadily, with significant improvements such
as multi-resolution video (Vijeth Aradhya), video subtitles (Saksham)
and a bunch of minor improvements and bug-fixes. Like most
community-driven free software projects, progress only happens when
people show up and make it happen.






GNOME Foundation and Endless launch inaugural Community Engagement Challenge



From April 7th by GNOME Foundation



The GNOME Foundation, in conjunction with Endless, is proud to
announce that starting April 9th, entries will be accepted for the
inaugural Community Engagement Challenge, an exciting new opportunity
to submit a project that will engage beginning coders with the free
software community.



The Challenge is a three-phase competition designed to generate
stimulating ideas that will help connect the next generation of coders
to the free software community and keep them active and engaged for
years to come. Up to $65,000 in cash prizes are available to the
individuals or teams with the best entries.






GNU Guix 1.1.0 released



From April 15th by Ludovic Courtès and Marius Bakke



We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Guix version 1.1.0! The
release comes with ISO-9660 installation images, a virtual machine
image, and with tarballs to install the package manager on top of your
GNU/Linux distro, either from source or from binaries. Guix users can
update by running guix pull.
