Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: June 2nd starting at 12:00 p.m. EDT/16:00 UTC

Join the FSF and friends Friday, June 2nd, from 12:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory, with this week's theme of adding new entries.

Participate in supporting the Directory by adding new entries and updating existing ones. We will be on IRC in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org.

Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth of useful information, from basic category and descriptions, to providing detailed info about version control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing info that has been carefully checked by FSF staff and trained volunteers.

While the Directory has been and continues to be a great resource to the world over the past decade, it has the potential of being a resource of even greater value. But it needs your help!

It was June 2nd, 1998 that the CIH computer virus was discovered in Taiwan. This virus resulted in wide spread damage. An insecure system is still a problem for many. This week we are going to look at software for security. There are hundreds of programs in this category that need some attention. We hope you'll join us and add you favorite security software to the Directory, and if it's already there you can help improve the entry by expanding and updating the information.

If you are eager to help and you can't wait or are simply unable to make it onto IRC on Friday, our participation guide will provide you with all the information you need to get started on helping the Directory today! There are also weekly Directory Meeting pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
