[free-software-melb-announce] FSA 19th of May — Brainstorming how Free Software Australia will broaden FLOSS adoption

FSM Committee committee at freesoftware.org.au
Thu May 5 23:53:50 AEST 2022

Hi everyone,

This month is very special as we’ll be looking more into details how Free Software Australia can reach its goals : broadening the adoption of FLOSS in Australia. It’s a brainstorming session for people interested in the future and development of FSA.

We’ll discuss the mid and long term goals we want to reach as a group, the place of FSA in the Australian FLOSS society, its relationship to organisations, administrations and the general public, as well as what could be the different milestones of this journey.

We’ll open the session with an inspirational presentation about Framasoft, who are the largest not-for-profit FLOSS organization worldwide. We will discuss its main actions and activities over the past decade and how it led to the creation of CHATONS — kittens in French — the Collective of Hosters Alternative, Transparent, Open, Neutral and Solidarity. We will also have a presentation about CHATONS to see what activities and initiatives they have started. The story of these two successful entities and their actions should provide us with plenty of grist for our mill.

This will be a non-technical event and all are welcome to share their insights. Note the new starting time is a bit earlier than previous meetups.
