Hong Kong activities are getting a website!

Part of our recent activities have included moving our non-profit organization to Hong Kong as previously announced. In the process some of the regulations are a little different and require us to modify our activities. One of that requirement is to have local activities which we have started in May. We are currently leading a bi-monthly Free Software hackfest called the Loop, and happening at the local hackerspace. Of course having local activities means we need to be very clear towards our public and have therefore decided to have a different website for what we are doing in Hong Kong. Most likely this will not change much of your relationship with us but this can also be a different angle to your perspective on Free Software, Culture and Hardware and what can be nurtured in your area. So without any further ado please let us introduce you to our Digital Freedom Foundation Hong Kong activities. Of course expect more to come very soon...

SFD2013 Registration is on!

This is with a great pleasure that we are announcing registration opening for SFD 2013! Any team registered on or before July 21, 2013 will receive a pack of goodies (200 packs, first come first served) including a big banner, tshirts, stickers, balloons, etc. It's easy to register, you just need to create your wiki pages and submit your event information. Read this HowTo and contact us via email or on IRC (#SFD on freenode) if you need any help.

Please also help to promote SFD by placing our SFD counter with your own language and banners in your website or blog. Yes! We have 2 languages available at the moment and if you want to localize it to your own language, it is very easy to add a new language, follow the instruction in this page.

Happy Culture Freedom Day

The second edition of Culture Freedom Day is happening today! So get ready to enjoy a bit of art today and go check our events map right away. While CFD should be a little bit more difficult to organize the results should be a lot more accessible to the whole family. Note that if nothing is happening in your area you can either try to run your own event in the coming few weeks or else simply check the available Free Culture movies and watch a few at home or with friends.

Happy Hardware Freedom Day

It is with very great pleasure that the first Hardware Freedom Day under our initiative is being run. Over 66 teams worldwide are celebrating this event today and some of us are available under IRC on Freenode (#hfd) to share what we are doing. You can also find a live stream of the Japanese event here and maybe more as we'll put them up as we are discovering them. We have to say that we are quite impressed with the numbers even if not the whole world is covered and hope that a lot of you will have the opportunity to discover what hardware hacking is about.

So happy HFD and happy hacking!

Happy Document Freedom Day!

While we are not organizing the Document Freedom Day we can surely encourage people to celebrate such an important celebration. Indeed today is the day to get together and remind everyone that free documents is the way to go. Should it be office documents, music files or any specific application file that you are using they should all be free for any software to use them.

While the global number of events is not publicly available (you just need to add them all up) we strongly wish that you can attend an event in your area. So please do go and check the online map and make the effort to attend an celebration in your area. And if this year you cannot, then organize something for the year to come!
