The LibrePlanet Rapid Responders is a network of activists who aim to spread the free software philosophy in the press, blogs, forums, and social media. We respond immediately to articles, posts, and discussions related to free software. We pride ourselves in non-inflammatory and persuasive responses to those who misunderstand or misrepresent free software.

What we do

The activities of this team break down into two main functions:

  1. Responding to media and press concerning free software
  2. Spreading links that effectively and accurately promote free software

We do the above in an organized fashion which involves all of the following:

Get Involved

Involvement can be anything from just following the email list to share the links or throw support behind important articles all the way to writing full articles about free software.

Join Us!

If this is something that interests you, please join the discussion list:

Thanks, and we appreciate your support!

If you spend time reading popular blogs or mainstream press and you have a good handle on the debate around software freedom, your help would be very valuable!

Just to be clear, the goal here is not to get into long, drawn out flame-wars that have been repeated elsewhere :) Rather, this will be an organized and careful approach to shifting the debate about the public's control of technology.

Getting Started

We hope you take the first step in joining the FSF Community Team, by joining the mailing list. Since you'll be helping the FSF get its free software message out, the next step is for you to do some reading to make sure you are familiar with what we are trying to convey. Please read these three articles about the FSF's basic philosophy and common mistakes that people make. Feel free to ask any questions you have about them (questions are good!).

Have a look around this wiki, starting with this page:

Feel free to post to the mailing list links to articles, blog posts, or forum discussions that address directly, or indirectly, issues regarding free software. We're especially interested in topics that miss the point of free software, or contain misinformation, providing a context for education.

Also, once you've read the articles, we'd love for you to post to the mailing list the text and links of any responses you make on the web. This has the advantage of creating the opportunity for feedback, and inspiring other members of the list to post comments as well.

Thank you so much for volunteering!
