Making the universal operating system, free as in freedom. ♥ The Debian identi.ca account is now fed by the Debian micronews site. Help animating this account: → http://deb.li/identica
- The Debian Snapshot Archive http://snapshot.debian.org/ plays a crucial role in research reproducibility and repeatability. Does any other free operating system have the same concept of providing a snapshot archive?
Debconf streaming and kudos to the video teamWith Debconf being in South Africa, a lot of people (like me) probably weren't able to attend and are missing the cheese and wine party, mao games and general socialization that is happening there.
One thing we don't have to miss, however, are the talks: as usual the video team is doing a great job recording and streaming all talks so that people can still participate a bit from their home.
What they do, however, requires a lot of manpower, so if you are attending Debconf please consider volunteering to help: from my experience last year they are very nice people who are welcoming towards new contributors and they have periodical training sessions to help people getting started with the various tasks. More informations about video team meetings and training session are in the topic of the IRC channel, #debconf-video@OFTC.
I don't think there are cookies involved (which just proves that the video team isn't evil), but you may get a t-shirt and you will get a warm fuzzy feeling of having helped people around the world.
- thanks to #Citizenfour, @debian has now an entry on IMDB http://www.imdb.com/company/co0504449/Also Tails, GPG and CCC! :-)
The Tor project gets credit, but not from Citizenfour only, also from some TV mini series episode called "Crash Course: Intellectual Property: Copyright #2 (#1.3)". Now I'm curious to see that one.
