Fall Bulletin: Fully shareable, fully lovable

As the seasons change, and those in the northern hemisphere prepare for the cold of winter, we continue our annual cadence of software freedom advocacy. Sent from the Free Software Foundation's (FSF) cozy Boston office, the physical printed pamphlets have been mailed out to supporters around the world, and issue forty-one of the Free Software Foundation Bulletin is now also available online!

In this issue of the Bulletin, you'll learn about:

The printed version already sent to over 12,000 supporters, and we expect this issue of the Bulletin to be very helpful in spreading the word of free software. If you know anyone who is seeking freedom in their digital life, please share -- share freely. It is, after all, licensed under a free license, one that proudly affords readers the freedom to share.

Note: To unsubscribe from receiving a copy of the printed bulletin, please send an email saying "No snail mail."

Speaking of the "freedom to share," the FSF is currently in its year-end fundraiser focused on this important freedom. For thirty-seven years, the FSF has been protecting the freedom to share, and we are inviting anyone who is not already a member to consider joining before December 31 so that they may be a part of our sharing community and the effort to defend the freedom to share.

Can you join this effort as an FSF associate member? You can start for as little as $10 per month ($5 for students), or $120 per year. With your support, we can continue to show people how the freedom to share can affect change in all areas where software touches modern life. Besides that, your membership gives strength to the idea of free software. Plus, your membership will count towards achieving our fall goal of 455 new associate members before December 31, and you will be eligible for this year's snazzy and secure webcam cover when you join as an annual associate member at $120 or more. As of this writing, we are a little over a hundred members toward are goal, with about 350 more to go by the end of the year. By joining, you'll also be able to enjoy all the member benefits, which include merchandise discounts, a 16GB bootable membership card, and use of our associate member videoconferencing server. Membership dues help fund, among many other things, publications such as the FSF Bulletin, which reaches tens of thousands of people every year. Plus, your support helps the FSF remain proudly independent, to nurture the GNU Project, to certify freedom-respecting electronics, to host the annual LibrePlanet conference, and to battle the practice of Digital Restrictions Management (DRM).

Did you also receive the printed Bulletin in the mail? If so, please let us know when it arrives and help to get the word out by sharing a picture of your copy with the hashtag #fsfbulletin! We love seeing how far these little pamphlets travel -- and free software is necessary in every nook and cranny of the globe.
