LibrePlanet is also the name of the annual FSF conference
, which takes place every spring in or near Boston, MA.
FSF also maintains several IRC channels on Libera.Chat
. Join us on the #fsf channel to interact with FSF staff and other free software supporters, participate in Free Software Directory meetings on Fridays at 16:00-19:00 UTC, and give your feedback in planned meetings on FSF initiatives. Other FSF channels include #libreplanet and #dbd.
Other free software organizations and projects
Free software is for everyone, from the most hardcore Linux kernel hacker to the person installing their first piece of free software on an otherwise proprietary system. There are a myriad of ways to get started with the free software community.
Want to learn even more about what kinds of free software are out there? The Free Software Directory
is regularly updated by community members and FSF staff.
There are people dedicated to user freedom all around the world. You can watch videos
from past LibrePlanet conferences. These talks are given on a range of topics, introducing you to just a few people from the worldwide free software community and the wide variety of things they do.
Social media and what's happening elsewhere
We maintain social media accounts on GNU social
, and Twitter
. On these we share the latest in news related to free software and the greater space of digital rights.
Curious as to why we use Twitter, even though we find Twitter problematic? Read more about our reasons.
Even though we are using Twitter, you still won't find us on Facebook
or on LinkedIn, which we object to because of its use and promotion of nonfree software, though on any such site, you may find free software supporters congregating in unofficial groups.
