Why is free software important to you? Submit your response to our new video campaign!

by root Contributions Published on Oct 21, 2009 03:12 PM
At the Women in Free Software Summit and the Boston celebration of Software Freedom Day 2009, the FSF kicked off a new video testimonial campaign. See how it went, and help support the campaign by submitting a video response to these questions!

The FSF is launching a new advocacy campaign, and we'd love to have you involved. One of the most important tasks for us at the FSF is to help foster the understanding that free software is crucial to a free society, and that citizens should switch to free software at home and in their own work, for freedom's sake. But in many ways, most of this work has always been done by the millions of free software users around the world, telling others why they care about free software and what they use it for.

So, why not make all that energy, specificity, and persuasion part of our message to the world on FSF.org? And what better way to do it than with videos from free software supporters, published using free formats and an exciting new free standard for online video?

At the Women in Free Software Summit and the Boston celebration of Software Freedom Day 2009, FSF volunteer Dana Moser roved the event asking participants the following questions, and making videos of the responses (video links below):

The responses came out great, but that's just the beginning. We'd like you to submit your own video, and invite friends to do the same! It only takes five minutes. You can do it with your phone, your digital camera, or your webcam. If you'd like to record a second video in a language other than English, that's great too!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the "beta" videos:

Harley Amundsen, Jasimin Huang, Tal Schechter, Sven Vilomp, Joe Cornelli, Joe Fineman, Sara Adelaida McIntire, Leslie Hawthorn, Donald Robertson, Clara Raubertas, Christine Peters, Hannah Wallach, Fumiki Yuguchi, Nate Aune, Christine Spang, Steve Revilak

On a related note: We've been collecting written testimonials for a while. If you'd like to submit a written testimonial, email testimonial@fsf.org.

And if you'd also like to put up a short video to be part of our end of year fundraising campaign, see the submission guidelines.
