Brainstorming how Free Software Australia will broaden FLOSS adoption

Hi everyone,

PeerTube - Peer-to-peer video sharing for the people


Following on from last month's discussion and demonstration of Fed.Wiki we thought that we would explore another corner of the Fediverse, and so this month at Free Software Australia we'll be talking about Peertube. Along with discussing PeerTube itself we'll also explore how it benefits the Fediverse, the decentralised federation of social networks. Big words to speak about an alternative to Youtube that is growing in popularity in the Free/Libre and Open Source Software community, but PeerTube offers us the opportunity to take back control of our media sharing and consumption needs.

Federation and the Fediverse

This month at Free Software Australia we're going to be talking about Federation and the Fediverse. What is Federation, how it's used and what licences are used in federated projects. We'll also look at how software licensing influences federations and what projects have adopted. The Fediverse is a great example of a global network of independent servers communicating through common protocols to provide social networking and other services.

30 years of Linux under GPL (Linux30 project launch)

This month marks a pretty significant milestone in the history of the Gnu Public Licence (GPL): 30 years ago Linus Torvalds chose the GPL for the distribution of the recently created Linux kernel — a decision which has had huge consequences for the further development of Free Software.
