At July 8th 2011, three years have passed since I re-entered "into the game" of the Free Software after a meditative stop of one and a half year in order to dedicate to my studies. Through these three years there were good and bad moments but it was always a struggle for the best and most qualitative promotion of Free Software and its philosophy. I stuck with other people and saw also many shooting stars passing by in front of my eyes. At the end what matters, is to encounter with all difficulties in patience and prudence.

Some months ago I proudly debarked from the Google ship, stop using Google Docs, Calendar, Picasa, Blogger, Reader and Youtube. I continue to use Gmail, Google Translate and seeing Youtube videos without subscription.

We live in turbulent times, that's for sure and the financial crisis is the one to blame. There is a very difficult situation in my country these days and lately there is much anger and discord among people. The Free Software Community is a part of the society, so it is affected by these phenomena. Many people don't realize one thing. That Free Software from its conception until now is not only an alternative software without viruses or a software given gratis. Is another way of life. Another point of view. Another development model which can help confront with the crisis.

Arab Uprising and the Role of Media

Undefined

The Digital Liberation Network organises at 16/4/2011 at the Free Social Centre "Nosotros", the event about the role of media in arab uprising. Surely a big part of the communication media that was used by these movements has to do with Free Software. So, is one of the few times that someone can realise the importance of "free as in speech, not as in beer" software and how this has direct effect on a revolt.
