Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: September 8th starting at 12:00 p.m. EDT/16:00 UTC
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 for over a decade now, it has the potential to be a resource of even greater value. But it needs your help!
September 8th marks the anniversary of the 1966 debut of Star Trek, introducing the world to the U.S.S. Enterprise and its intrepid crew of explorers. The universe created by this series is still expanding today, and this fictional universe has even bridged the gap to non-fiction, providing the name for the first NASA orbital shuttle, as well as numerous asteroids. To honor this well-loved cultural touchstone, the theme of the Directory this week will be physics, those fundamental laws that make worlds spin.
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.
