Boston Marathon bombings

by John Sullivan Contributions Published on Apr 16, 2013 01:44 PM
Thank you to everyone for thinking of us at the Free Software Foundation office in downtown Boston as yesterday's terrible news unfolded. We appreciate all the concerned emails and queries.

Our office was officially closed during the attack, in observance of the Patriots' Day holiday. The bombs went off about a mile away from our location, so we were not at risk. Today, all of our staff and interns are safe and accounted for.

Our hearts are with those who were injured and the loved ones of those who died.

There has already been a tremendous outpouring of support from Boston residents and businesses offering hospitality and help to visitors who have been displaced. Let me add our small contribution -- as always, anyone visiting Boston is welcome in our office; we can at least offer wifi, coffee, and good company.
