By April 10th: Urge the European Commission to adopt free software values when funding Internet improvements

Please take a few minutes and do this. You can really make a difference.

Our friends at FSF Europe are highlighting an important opportunity to help direct 750 million Euro toward fixing the Internet using free software values and expertise:

The European Commission is about to allocate 750 million Euro over the next years on the "future internet", but the really important subjects (like: everything we learned from Edward Snowden) are not on their radar - yet.

However, if we bundle our efforts that is something that is definitely within reach. At the moment we are told there are only a couple of dozens of submissions from mostly the usual suspects, so your response would (at least on paper) count for influencing a few million Euro of this budget. It really makes a difference if you submit something, even if it is really short.

Read Matthias Kirschner's post for more details and for instructions on submitting your ideas.
