Check out the great work our volunteers accomplished at the last Free Software Directory meeting at LibrePlanet.
The second day of LibrePlanet 2017 started with a talk by author, blogger, editor, activist, and Internet freedom fighter Cory Doctorow. Straight through to Sumana Harihareswara's closing keynote, the day was full of conversations and presentations touching on a broad range of topics across the free software movement.
Christian Fernandez is a cyber security expert, joining us at LibrePlanet 2017 to talk about penetration testing and how "pentesting" can be done using entirely free tools.
Denver Gingerich is the founder and lead developer of JMP (https://jmp.chat/), a free software chat gateway that lets you text and call people using a real phone number without a phone. He's speaking at LibrePlanet 2017 (https://libreplanet.org/2017) (March 25-26th in Cambridge, MA), in Block 5B, from 15:40-16:25 on Sunday.

This is the latest installment of our Licensing and Compliance Lab's series on free software developers who choose GNU licenses for their works.
GitHub's updated terms caused a great deal of concern, but while they are confusing, they do not appear to be incompatible with copyleft. The Free Software Foundation (FSF), though, still recommends using other code hosting sites.
