And to continue this busy week in announcements we have just opened Education Freedom Day registration, scheduled on March 21st, 2015. For its second edition EFD has been moved to March to facilitate its celebration in both the south of the planet and China (at least...) and we hope to cater to more events this year.
As usual for all our Freedom celebrations the process is similar, you get together and decide to organize an event, then create a page in our wiki and register your team. As the date approaches you get to put more information in your wiki page (or on your organization website which is linked from the wiki) such as the date and time, the location and what people can expect to see.
Education Freedom Day is really the opportunity to review all the available Free Educational Resources available, how they have improved since last year and what you should start planning to implement to deploy in the coming months. More importantly it is the celebration of what is available and letting people aware of it!
So prepare well and see you all in two months to celebrate Education Freedom Day!
After an exciting weekend celebrating Hardware Freedom Day what could possibly be better than going back to the very inspiring video made to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Free Software Foundation? Indeed it's been made using Free Software only and goes through the work of the foundation for the past thirty years. It's actually nice to look at, positive and very well animated. We will definitely encourage all our software freedom day teams to use it during their events. But let us say no more and let you enjoy it if you've missed it so far:
And then, for the ones into this kind of work, and blender in particular, you can find a detailed explaination of the challenges that the makers of the work went through and how they fixed them right here. Definitely a great read into the whole process from design to finish. Great job guys! And of course a happy 30th anniversary to the FSF from the Digital Freedom Foundation and all its members!
The Digital Freedom Foundation (DFF) has transitioned over the past ten years from a marketing events organization to advocate the use of Free Software to an organization which has broaden its scope to digital knowledge in general covering Free Software, Open Hardware and Content (OER, Free culture), and assembled or created all the required pieces to drive an educational project aimed at educating the people in needs.
As a worldwide community with hundreds of local groups and associations taking part in our efforts, we hope to extend our reach to every corner of the world. Please join us by organizing or participating in any of our international days!
We have 16 guests and no members online
