I help organize a conference for Free Software enthusiasts called SeaGL. This year I’m proud to report that Shauna Gordon McKeon and Richard Stallman (aka “RMS”) are keynote speakers.
I first invited RMS to Seattle 13 years ago, and finally in 2015 it all came together. In his words:
My talks are not technical. The topics of free software, copyright vs community, and digital inclusion deal with ethical/political issues that concern all users of computers.
So please do come on down to Seattle Central College on October 23rd and 24th, 2015 for SeaGL!
The Seattle Police Department has a great service called Tweets by Beat where one can freak oneself out at how much crime is occurring everywhere.
Notice no links are included. To get the details, visit police headquarters and ask for help. Have the information in the tweet handy–you’ll need it for the paperwork. Don’t mention “tweets” or Twitter or Tweets by Beat because you might as well be speaking Klingon. Just say you saw/heard something happen and want the 911 call and incident report. They’ll help you fill out the paperwork, and they’ll provide the relevant public records within 5 business days.
The Seattle Disaster Relief Trials was a blast! Great idea, Jesse.
The balloon got wedged into my helmet at the 1st checkpoint and just stayed there the whole ride.
There’s also a *very* brief cameo of me buckling in a bucket of water at the 2nd checkpoint (1min 52sec in) in http://q13fox.com/2013/06/21/bike-heroes-prepare-for-disaster/
