LibrePlanet 2018 is on the way: check out the talks and register!


From February 20


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?



Inside the FSF: Our FY2016 Annual Report is here


From February 28


Because we deeply value transparency and accountability, we are
publishing our latest Annual Report, which covers the 2016 fiscal year
of October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016. The report is the
result of a full external financial audit, along with a focused study
of program results. It offers a look at the Foundation's activities,
accomplishments, and financial picture. You will also read about the
impact of our programs and FY2016's major events.



OneMoreVote is needed to save net neutrality


From February 22


Protecting net neutrality in the United States is one of the most
important issues facing digital rights activists and advocates here
and abroad. After the Federal Communication Commission (FCC)
shamefully revoked the common carrier classification of Internet
Service Providers (ISPs), members of Congress finally took notice and
started working on a Congressional Review Act (CRA), which would allow
them to overturn a policy decision. At the time of this writing, 50
Senators were pledged and one more was needed; on February 27, we were
part of an Internet-wide push to get one more Senator on board.



Thank you, Linux Conf Australia!


From February 8


LCA is Australasia's grassroots free software conference, organized by
Linux Australia. Even though GNU wasn't recognized in the name of the
event (which we would love to see!), the spirit of software freedom
was felt in sessions covering topics from F-Droid to Australian
Computing Academy's programs to teach free software languages to
students. You can see FSF talks in the links below: "A division of
labor in free software," by Molly de Blanc, and "Freedom embedded:
devices that respect users and communities," by John Sullivan.



Join GNU Guix through Outreachy or Google Summer of Code (GSoC)


From February 19


We are happy to announce that for the first time this year, GNU Guix
offers a three-month internship through Outreachy, the inclusion
program for groups traditionally underrepresented in free software and
tech. Interns may choose to work on improving the user experience for
the Guix package command-line tool, or enhancing Guile tools for the
Guix package manager. Eligible persons should apply by March 22nd.



John Perry Barlow, Internet pioneer, 1947-2018


From February 7 by Cindy Cohn


The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) founder, visionary, and our
ongoing inspiration, John Perry Barlow, passed away quietly in his
sleep this morning. It is no exaggeration to say that major parts of
the Internet we all know and love today exist and thrive because of
Barlow’s vision and leadership. He always saw the Internet as a
fundamental place of freedom, where voices long silenced can find an
audience and people can connect with others regardless of physical
distance.



EFF vs IoT DRM, OMG!


From February 7 by Cory Doctorow


Section 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) bans any
act that weakens or bypasses Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). We
don't know which designs and products will be successful in the
market, but we're dead certain that banning people from talking about
flaws in existing designs and trying to fix those flaws will make all
the Internet of Things' problems worse. This is why the Electronic
Frontier Foundation (EFF) and other allies to free software are trying
to liberate your smart speakers, and suing the US government over the
constitutionality of DMCA 1201.



The catalog of missing devices


From February 5 by the EFF


There’s a whole catalog of devices that are missing from our
world. Things we’d pay money for — things you could earn money with —
don’t exist thanks to the chilling effects of an obscure copyright
law: Section 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA
1201). That law makes selling a device that bypasses access controls
on copyrighted works illegal, with criminal penalties of five years in
prison (for a first offense!), and potential civil penalties in the
millions.



Eric Lundgren, "e-waste" recycling innovator, faces prison for trying to extend life span of PCs


From February 15 by Tom Jackman


Prosecutors said that Lundgren ripped off Microsoft by manufacturing
28,000 counterfeit discs with the company’s Windows operating system
on them. He was convicted of conspiracy and copyright infringement,
which brought a 15-month prison sentence and a $50,000 fine. But he
says this was no profit-making scheme. By his account, he just wanted
to make it easier to extend the usefulness of secondhand computers --
keeping more of them out of the trash.



Sorry, Federal Communication Commission (FCC): Charter will lower investment after net neutrality repeal


From February 8 by Jon Brodkin


FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his staff have repeatedly claimed that
broadband investment falls because of net neutrality rules, and rises
when net neutrality rules are repealed. This argument is what drove
the FCC's public defense of its decision to eliminate popular rules
that prevent ISPs from blocking, throttling, or speeding up Internet
traffic in exchange for payment. But Charter raised its capital
investment in 2017 while the net neutrality rules were in place. And
with the repeal soon to take effect, Charter says it is preparing for
a "meaningful decline" in spending on building and upgrading broadband
networks.



Facebook funded most of the experts who vetted Messenger Kids


From February 14 by Nitasha Tiku


When Facebook launched Messenger Kids, an app for preteens and
children as young as 6, the company stressed that it had worked
closely with leading experts in order to safeguard younger users. What
Facebook didn’t say is that many of those experts had received funding
from Facebook.



China's dystopian tech could be contagious


From February 14 by Adam Greenfield


The Chinese government has become convinced that a far greater degree
of social control is both necessary and possible. It now has access to
a set of tools for managing the complexity of contemporary life: known
by the anodyne name “social credit,” this system is designed to reach
into every corner of existence both online and off. It monitors each
individual’s consumer behavior, conduct on social networks, and
real-world infractions like speeding tickets or quarrels with
neighbors. Then it integrates them into a single, algorithmically
determined “sincerity” score.



dtrace for linux: Oracle does the right thing


From February 14 by Mark J. Wielaard


Dtrace dropped the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL)
and switched to the GNU General Public License version 2.0 (or any
later version)! Dtrace is a whole system observability tool combining
tracing, profiling and probing/debugging techniques. It was previously
under the CDDL, a free yet unfortunately GPL-incompatible
license. With the license switch, Dtrace module sources can now be
integrated into the main kernel Linux tree. Resolving this
incompatibility is a great development for the package.



Data and dating: Who else wants your love?


From February 16 by the Tactical Technology Collective


The data you give away when using dating apps might seem like a small
price to pay for the possibility of meeting someone new. But are you
aware of what’s happening in the background? The systems by which data
is collected, analyzed, sold, traded and reused might be more
complicated than you think.



HomePod is the ultimate Apple product -- in a bad way


From February 12 by Adam Clark Estes


It’s not like I’m surprised that Apple’s new audio hardware is firmly
rooted within the walled garden that the company has been building for
decades now. I just can’t believe there is a human who is so committed
to the Apple ecosystem that they would spend perhaps thousands of
dollars to outfit the rooms of their house with HomePods, only to be
stuck shoveling more money at Apple so that they can actually play
music with those speakers.



Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory


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. Meetings take place
in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org, and usually include a handful
of regulars as well as newcomers. Freenode is accessible from any IRC
client -- Everyone's welcome!


The next meeting is Friday, March 2, from 12pm to 3pm EST (16:00 to
19:00 UTC). Details here:



LibrePlanet featured resource: Free Javascript Action Team


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 the Free Javascript Action Team,
which provides information about the FSF campaign to get important Web
sites working without proprietary JavaScript. 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 campaigns@fsf.org.
