Blog Entry Join with me to support the Software Freedom Conservancy
by John Sullivan published Dec 21, 2015
This is a key moment to stand up for yourselves, to give back for work that's already been done, and to ensure the continued growth of free software as a means to ensure our freedom, and the freedom of future generations. Fortunately, since we have the strength of numbers to draw on, you can do your part for both organizations for less than the monthly cost of a couple Netflix subscriptions or a single dinner out.

Lending: A solved problem
by John Sullivan published Dec 22, 2010 last modified Apr 09, 2012 02:07 PM
Lending and borrowing are not desirable activities. They are things we do when we have to, when there isn't enough of something to go around. Not to say that lending something like a book to a friend is without benefits beyond access to the material; it can create a shared experience that makes for good conversation, or provide an excuse to see each other.
