Subject: [FSF] Spread the free software philosophy by joining the new FSF
Community Team
To: info-member at gnu.org

Hi everyone,

The FSF is putting together a group of volunteer supporters to spread
the free software philosophy in blogs, online press, and through
social networking sites.

If you spend some time each day reading popular blogs or mainstream
press and you have a good handle on the debate around software
freedom, this could be a great opportunity. As part of the FSF
Community team, you'll be doing things like:

* Responding to questions and correcting misconceptions about free
software in online media.

* Working with the FSF campaigns team to respond to big news stories
that impact software freedom, or stories that are chances for people
to understand why free software matters.

* Making sure that important stories, about topics like fully free
GNU/Linux distributions, DRM, or the dangers of "cloud computing," get
as much attention as possible in the media and the widest possible
reach through social networking sites.

Just to be clear, the goal here is not to get into long, drawn out
flame-wars :). Rather, this will be an organized and respectful
approach to raising awareness of free software's importance. As an FSF
member, you're already very familiar with the principles of free
software. This is a great chance to put that knowledge to use.

If this is something that interests you, take the first step by
joining the discussion list:

Thanks, and we appreciate your support!

Campaigns Manager
