TLWIR BREAKING NEWS: GNU/Linux Petition Featured on WhiteHouse.gov!

http://beginlinux.com

I deeply believe that this one step is PART of the solution to the problem of the crushing national debt that the United States is currently facing.

FSFE's Education Team 2011 Summary

http://blogs.fsfe.org

When I talk to people as a member of FSFE’s education team, there’s always the question what we are actually doing. It is not so easy to come up with something specific. I know we’ve been busy all the time, but ad hoc, it’s difficult for me to name examples, that are worth mentioning.
