Spread the free software philosophy by joining the new FSF Community Team

by root Contributions Published on Dec 09, 2009 03:01 PM

The FSF is putting together a Community Team of supporters to spread the free software philosophy in blogs, online press, and through social networking sites.

If you spend some time each day reading popular blogs or mainstream press and you have a good handle on the debate around software freedom, this could be a great opportunity. As part of the FSF Community team, you'll be doing things like:

  • Responding to questions and points about free software in online media.

  • Working with the FSF campaigns team to respond to big news stories that impact software freedom, or stories that are chances for people to understand why free software matters.

  • Making sure that important stories, about topics like fully free GNU/Linux distributions, DRM, or the dangers of "cloud computing," get as much attention as possible in the media and the widest possible reach through social networking sites.

Just to be clear, the goal here is not to get into long, drawn out flame-wars :). Rather, this will be an organized and respectful approach to raising awareness of free software's importance.

If this is something that interests you, take the first step by joining the discussion list:

Thanks, and we appreciate your support!
