Dear all,

We wanted to wish you a happy holiday season (for those of you on
holidays) and a happy 2014!

2014 is an important year for SFD and Digital Freedom Foundation, the
non-profit behind it. We have now extended our celebrations to four in a
year as the Free Software philosophy extends to more and more places. We
have also merged one of our side activities, Greenboard, which is
building a totally Free and Open Source curriculum to meet a tremendous
need for technology for everybody and especially the unprivileged groups
at the lowest possible cost. While currently only available in Chinese
(as it is where it is developed) we are slowly translating it into English.

So to be short we will be celebrating the following events this year:
- Education Freedom Day: Saturday January 18th
- Hardware Freedom Day: Saturday March 15th
- Culture Freedom Day: Saturday May 17th
- Software Freedom Day: Saturday September 20th

You can of course find more information on the related websites[1] or
ask us questions through the appropriate mailing lists[2].

Last but not least, we are headed towards our tenth year of existence
and this would not have been possible without you and without all the
supporting organizations which have followed us around the years, namely
Canonical, Google, Linode, the FSF and FSFE, Creative Commons, FreeBSD,
Joomla!, the Open Clipart Library, Foundation Ceata, Linux Magazine,
Linux Journal, Ubuntu User, Admin magazine and smart developer.

This year we will also try to raise more funds and hopefully hire
someone to help us full time as it is starting to be a busy
all-year-round activity. Hopefully this will make us more active and
responsive to all the requests we are getting and better overall.

So thank you all and let's make 2014 unforgettable!

Kind regards,


Frederic Muller
