On Friday, February 26th we will be hosting FACIL, an advocacy organisation that promotes software freedom and open formats, for our next 5@7. FACIL will be filling us in on the initiatives underway to promote the adoption of Free, Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS): the status of FLOSS within the government of Quebec, ACTA, tou.tv. Please join us for a stimulating and fun

In the past 6 nights, I have done no more than 17 hours of sleep, including the power naps in some of the planes. This makes less than 3hrs per night. So what did this produce as negative effects? Well, bad concentration and paleness. Bad quality presentations. Forgetting personal belongings. Eating once a day. Drinking too much coffee. Moments of falling asleep while people demand my attention, and sleepless hours in bed, when emptiness is stronger than anything else and not allowing me to close my eyes.
The Free Society Conference and the Nordic Summit will be taking place this year in Göteborg, Sweden. I was invited by Serengeti community, who wished to make a link between the Free Software movement and the social communities and groups.

I will be also doing a keynote speech on Free Software and Feminism.
November 14, 15h15 for the Free Software and Women Movements track

I will need to prepare for a 5 weeks missing from home, a wrap-up for my thesis for the end of August....
