у меня часто возникает впечатление, что сообщество в сфере открытых
технологий в России (и я, в том числе) живёт в параллельной
реальности. Ну, вот есть какие-то актуальные темы. Есть что-то, что
волнует и тревожит, а оно проходит мимо нас.

Кстати, может это и неплохо, но иногда мне кажется, что вокруг всё
такое тихое, почти мёртвенькое. И так получается, я думаю, именно
потому, что мы оторваны от какой-то миниммально актуальной повестки
дня. Поэтому я решил переслать вот это приглашение на очередное
мероприятие LibrePlanet:

Может быть там найдётся, что-нибудь интересное. Кстати, замечу, что
там с русскими переводами как-то совсем никак:
- ...

Ну, а из интересного и актуального я нашёл вот такую крамольную тему
(ничего, с ходу не понял, кроме того, что Трамп - это что-то страшное
- что-то мне это напоминает, не правда ли? ;) ):
- "When we fight we win: Technology and liberation in Trump’s America"

Dear Free Software Supporter,

On March 24th and 25th, 2018, the free software community will come
together at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to learn,
exchange ideas, catch up with friends, and plan the future of the
movement. Will you join us?

It's the tenth anniversary of LibrePlanet, and now is a good time to
register to attend. As always, Free Software Foundation (FSF) members
and students attend gratis.

Hundreds of people from across the globe will converge on Cambridge,
Massachusetts to explore this year's theme, "Freedom Embedded." We'll
look at embedded systems in everything from our cars to our bodies,
discuss how these systems affect our entire society, and talk about
how to change the narrative, making free software the norm, instead of
walled gardens, Digital Restrictions Management (DRM), and proprietary

In addition to the keynote speakers we announced last month,
LibrePlanet 2018 will feature a panoply of presentations. Our lineup
includes Jeremiah Foster, who will examine free software and vehicles;
a panel of speakers including Dana Lewis, Karen Sandler, Mad Ball, and
Rachel Kalmar, who will discuss freedom and devices used for health,
medicine, and wellness; and Bob Call, who will talk about libreCMC, a
distro for embedded devices.

LibrePlanet 2018 offers lots of opportunities for fun, too: in
addition to the annual FSF open house the evening of Friday, March
23rd, and the LibrePlanet party on Saturday night, there will be a
special piano concert featuring freely licensed arrangements. And the
conference looks at gaming and art, too: Noah Swartz will walk us
through the roguelikes game genre, and Bassam Kurdali will teach a
workshop in free software photogrammetry! The full program will be
published soon. In the meantime, check out the list of confirmed

LibrePlanet brings together software developers, activists, policy
experts, and computer users to share accomplishments, learn new
skills, and address challenges to software freedom. Newcomers are
always welcome, and LibrePlanet 2018 will feature programming for all
experience levels, including students.

LibrePlanet 2018 is produced by the Free Software Foundation in
partnership with the Student Information Processing Board (SIPB) at

LibrePlanet needs volunteers -- maybe you!

In ten years, LibrePlanet has grown in size and scope -- and its
continued success is thanks to dozens of volunteers who help prepare
for and run the conference. Volunteering is a great way to meet fellow
community members and contribute to LibrePlanet, even if you can't
attend in person! If you are interested in volunteering for
LibrePlanet 2018, email We thank all of our
volunteers by offering them gratis conference admission and a
LibrePlanet T-shirt.

Seeking raffle prizes!

We are still looking for prizes to raffle off at this year's
LibrePlanet. If you or your company have a prize you would like to
donate, please email Examples of past LibrePlanet
raffle prizes include a 3D printer running free software, a laptop
with free BIOS and free GNU distro, and DRM-free eBook gift

Donating a prize is a great way to support LibrePlanet and the FSF
while engaging the diverse audience who attends the conference. Raffle
ticket sales support travel scholarships, student admission, and other
LibrePlanet expenses (including coffee!). Donors receive
acknowledgment on the Web, via social media, and at the conference at
the raffle ticket booth and during the prize drawings.

Spread the word about LibrePlanet 2018: blog or microblog to let
people know that you'll be there, using the hashtag #libreplanet.
