From April 24th
Today a coalition of twenty-seven organizations released a joint
letter to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the Web's
standards-setting body, condemning Encrypted Media Extensions (EME).
EME is a proposal to incorporate support for Digital Restrictions
Management (DRM) -- the systems used by media and technology companies
to restrict watching, sharing, recording, and transforming digital
works -- into HTML, the core language of the Web.

The Free Software Foundation (FSF), a Boston-based 501(c)(3) charity
with a worldwide mission to protect freedoms critical to the
computer-using public, seeks a motivated and organized tech-friendly
Boston-based individual to be its full-time outreach and
communication coordinator. This newly created position, reporting to
the executive director, will work closely with our campaigns,
licensing, and technical staff, as well as our board of directors, to
edit, publish, and promote high-quality, effective materials both
digital and printed.

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) today awarded Respects Your Freedom
(RYF) certification to the TPE-N150USB Wireless N USB Adapter, sold by
ThinkPenguin. The RYF certification mark means that the product meets
the FSF's standards in regard to users' freedom, control over the
product, and privacy. The TPE-N150USB can be purchased from
http://www.thinkpenguin.com/TPE-N150USB. Software certification

Hi, I'm Saurabh. I've been working as an intern with the campaigns
team during the spring semester. I worked with Mozilla when I was in
college as a Campus Rep and as a Rep later. I'm also a member of
Greenpeace and have done a little online activism with DemandProgress,
SumOfUs, etc. Since college, I've been working as a professional web
developer for the past two years, and I love my job. My areas of
interest include accessible technical documentation, standardization,
realtime communication technologies and freedom.

have restocked a number of our designs: Happy Hacking, GNU Head, Live
the Dream, Free Software Free Society, Anti-DRM, ThankGNU, and GPLv3.
We also have added a shirt commemorating LibrePlanet 2013.
From April 18th
We want to commend Google for doing the right thing. We reported a few
weeks ago that Google had started blocking invites sent from
non-Google Jabber servers. This was done as a crude anti-spam measure.
We are happy to report that Google has since rolled out proper
antispam filtering for its Jabber service, and has removed the invite

A handful of myths have become common defenses of the W3C’s plan for
“Encrypted Media Extensions” (EME), a Digital Restrictions Management
(DRM) scheme for HTML5, the next version of the markup language upon
which the Web is built.
From April 16th
Thank you to everyone for thinking of us at the Free Software
Foundation office in downtown Boston as yesterday's terrible news
unfolded. We appreciate all the concerned emails and queries.
From April 12th
Sometimes, proprietary software actually helps us fight for freedom.
Windows 8 is so bad it's almost funny -- it's not only proprietary
software full of spyware and security vulnerabilities, but it's also
confusing for would-be users. Lucky for us, Microsoft's spectacular
failure is the perfect time to help people switch to free software.
By Chris Webber, GNU MediaGoblin, from April 9th
I'm extremely proud to announce that MediaGoblin is in for a summer of
awesome... we're participating in both GSOC 2013 (under the GNU
umbrella) and the GNOME Outreach Program for Women 2013! (Yes, you
might notice we're not a GNOME project, but the super awesome people
at GNOME have extended the program to other free software projects.)
Are you a student looking for a summer job contributing to free
software? Or maybe you are a woman interested in contributing to free
software, something like MediaGoblin maybe? Then you should apply!
(Maybe you are both... we encourage you to apply to both programs
From April 9th
The involvement and energy of the free software community make
LibrePlanet what it is: brilliant and passionate people coming
together around software freedom, drinking lots of coffee and forging
the future of our movement. This year, we particularly appreciated
your contributions to the theme of "Commit Change": a focus on making
connections to other movements and building diversity within free
From April 11th
Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to
discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth
of useful information, from basic category and descriptions to version
control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing. The Free Software
Directory has been a great resource to software users over the past
decade, but it needs your help staying up-to-date with new and
exciting free software projects.
To help, join our weekly IRC meetings on Fridays from 3pm to 6pm EDT
(20:00 to 23:00 UTC). Meetings take place in the #fsf channel on
irc.gnu.org, and usually include a handful of regulars as well as
newcomers. Everyone's welcome.
After this meeting, you can check http://www.fsf.org/events to see
the rest of MONTH's weekly meetings as they are scheduled.
Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is
interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.
For this month, we are highlighting Day Against DRM, May 3rd, 2013,
where you can organize and sign up to attend events or online actions.
You are invited to adopt, spread and improve this important resource.
Do you have a suggestion for next month's featured resource? Let us
know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To get announcements of most new GNU releases, subscribe to the info-gnu
mailing list: http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/info-gnu. Nearly
all GNU software is available from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/, or
preferably one of its mirrors (http://www.gnu.org/prep/ftp.html). You
can use the url http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/ to be automatically
redirected to a (hopefully) nearby and up-to-date mirror.
This month, we welcome Arjun E as the new co-maintainer of GNU Ferret,
H.S. Rai as the new maintainer of libredwg, and Jeffrin Jose as the
author and maintainer of the new package GNU guile-sdl (in addition to
already maintaining GNU rcs and GNU alive).
A number of GNU packages, as well as the GNU operating system as a
whole, are looking for maintainers and other assistance. Please see
http://www.gnu.org/server/takeaction.html#unmaint if you'd like to
help. The general page on how to help GNU is at
http://www.gnu.org/help/help.html. To submit new packages to the GNU
operating system, see http://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.
As always, please feel free to write to me, email@example.com, with any
GNUish questions or suggestions for future installments.
From April 22nd
The GNU toolchain refers to the part of the GNU system which is used
for building programs. These components of GNU are together often on
other systems and for compiling programs for other platforms.
This month, there are updates on new options for GCC and Newlib.

events in your area, please visit http://www.fsf.org/events.
So far, Richard Stallman has the following events in May:
