Inspirational Projects

Over the years that the FLOSS Fund has been running, I have been surprised that people have such a hard time finding projects to nominate. I run into neat projects frequently.

I feel kind of squicky giving you a list (I am NOT suggesting that y'all nominate these projects), but maybe you can use this list to inspire yourself:

SJK pix

Gah. Once again I forgot you can't attach pictures directly to meeting locations.

Ubuntu LoCo

The local Ubuntu group Ralph Janke initiated is here: https://edge.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-waterloo-region.

GNU Screen Slides (Karmic Party)

I will never admit to going to a Linux launch party. No siree. But if I had gone to a hackerspace party and been coerced into presenting something, I might have made some slides like these.

The zip file contains slide sources and configuration snippets. I am puttting them here because I don't want to make an account on the Kwartzlab wiki.

Submission to copyright consultation

The deadline to make a submission to the Canadian Copyright consultations is September 13.
Richard pointed out a guide with astroturfing instructions: http://faircopy.ca/participate/.

This is the main consultation site: http://copyright.econsultation.ca/

This is my uninformed, blathering submission. It is less well-informed than an article published in the Waterloo Record. If I can make a submission, so can you!

Syslog Server Slides

Here are the slides (and sources) from the August 2009 presentation on syslog servers. The slides are released under a Creative Commons 2.5 Noncommercial ShareAlike licence. See the tarball for licencing of the different slide components.

Living Well Using Open Source

Are you sick of cleaning viruses and spyware off your computer? Are you tired of nagware, time-limited trials, and sketchy download sites with lots of pop-up ads?

Would you like to use software in a way that suits your needs and avoids treating you like a criminal?

Does the cost of computing deter you from developing new skills and exploring new interests on the computer?
