Next week we have two great opportunities for free software activists to
get out and make a difference.

Washington, DC
Tuesday, January 26th 8:45am-10:45am
ITIF, 1101 K Street, Washington, DC 20005, Suite 610

Help us counteract misinformation! Anti-commons pundit Milton Mueller
will give a speech on "info-communism" and what he thinks is wrong with
free software -- we want volunteers on hand with literature to educate
attendees about what free software really is and why user freedom is
critical for a free society.

Please send a note to campaigns at fsf.org to let us know you're coming!

San Francisco
Wednesday, January 27th, 9:45am-1pm (times are approximate, we don't
know how late this event will run yet)
Yerba Buena Arts Center Theater in Downtown San Francisco

Join us for a Defective by Design protest of the latest DRM'ed Apple
product! Given Apple's history, the new product they're unveiling will
undoubtedly impose DRM and restrict software freedom. We want to be on
hand to educate attendees and passers-by, and to direct media attention
to how Apple's plans impact user freedom.

Please send a note to info at defectivebydesign.org to let us know you're

We'll announce more details in the coming days on defectivebydesign.org
and http://identi.ca/group/dbd.

Remember volunteering is even more fun when you do it with a friend, so
bring someone with you!
Thanks for supporting free software,
John Sullivan
