FSM Working Group - The AMD Submission

Hi again Freedom Fighters,

Time to turn up the heat on AMD and put our names along side the EFA, LibreBoot and others in saying we want control over our devices and not the other way around. We'll look over the current draft and make improvements along the lines suggested in a meeting earlier this year. The current draft can be found here: http://freesoftware.org.au/wiki/AMDLetter

When we're happy with it we'll circulate it around the group for any further feedback before publishing and sending it to AMD

Join us at The Leveson (46 Leveson St, North Melbourne) where we'll try out a working group over dinner (or drinks if you prefer). Don't forget to bring devices to work from and we'll bring a hotspot to use

See you there

FSM May 18th - FSM Committee Functions and Behind the Gnews

Hey Freedom Supporters,

This month at Free Software Melbourne I'll be taking us through a guided tour of the FSM committee and what it takes to organise and run our events every month. First up we'll take a look at the resources and tools available to us including the wiki materials, website, media etc; we'll also go through the process of announcing an event on the website, the mailing list and other platforms; then we'll take a look at some new initiatives we've adopted recently and discuss how we might be able to use our tools more effectively.

We'll then have a special edition of our regular news segment "Behind the Gnews" where we'll look at the process of putting together the Gnews segment and of course we'll have a chin wag about current events as always followed by dinner down Errol St.

Hope to see you there.
