Wherever you are, we want you to be part of LibrePlanet


The free software movement is a global phenomenon, and we want the LibrePlanet conference to reflect that. That's why, wherever you are, you are invited to participate remotely by watching the livestream and participating in the discussion via IRC.
Bookmark the remote participation center now, and go there on Saturday, March 22, 2014 and Sunday, March 23, 2014 to watch the livestream.
Don't miss:
  • A program bursting with something for everyone in the free software movement, from inquisitive newcomers to hardcore developers.
  • Keynotes from NSA-revealer Jacob Appelbaum, GNOME executive director Karen Sandler, and free software legends Eben Moglen and Richard Stallman.
  • A vibrant online discussion with free software lovers from all over the world.
Another way to participate remotely is to join the conversation around the conference on the libreplanet-discuss mailing list. Join now and dive in.
If you can make it to Massachusetts, it's not too late to register. Students and volunteers get gratis admission. So do FSF members, which makes this a great time to join as an associate member, to enjoy great benefits and support free software year-round. So that we can run the conference as smoothly as possible for everyone, we ask that you register by the end of the day on Tuesday, March 18, 2014. However, late registrations and walk-ups will still be accepted.
We'd also like to express our gratitude to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Student Information Processing Board, our partner in organizing LibrePlanet 2014.
See you soon, whether it's in person or online,
Zak Rogoff
Campaigns Manager
