Intercettazioni? boh, anche per me

Leggo sul blog di Quintarelli che anche lui ne sa poco sulla vicenda intercettazioni. Ho fatto molta fatica a leggere i giornali in questo periodo: troppo polverone, coperto dalle dichiarazioni dei politici, ansiosi di una prima fila sempre e comunque. Non ne posso più. Però da quando lessi il rapporto della EC su Echelon mi…

D-Link condannata: e sarebbe una magra vittoria?

Da Punto Informatico mi aspetto di meglio. L’articolo di oggi riguardo D-Link e la GNU GPL merita delle correzioni e dei chiarimenti. Prima di tutto, Harald Welte e il suo avvocato non hanno mai chiesto un risarcimento di danni, non perché è difficile calcolarlo ma specialmente perché gpl-violations.org (in accordo con le FSF) intende educare,…

Milano regala Metroweb, S. Francisco pensa al wi-fi

Stamattina mi sono imbattuto su un documento del Institute for Local Self Reliance e Media Alliance intitolato “Sarebbe saggio investire risorse pubbliche per dotare San Francisco di un’infrastruttura informativa pubblica?” Da tempo la municipalità  di San Francisco sta valutando l’offerta di Google di dotare i residenti di accesso wi-fi su tutto il territorio comunale. L’articolo…

Reaching Bolzano from anywhere

Many Fellows are getting ready to participate to the Fellowship Meeting in Bolzano, nov. 11th but I noticed that many still don’t know how to reach Bolzano. Here are a few tips.

The closest airports are in Verona (Italy) and  Innsbruck (Austria, just across the border).  Following closest are Bergamo and Milano, where many cheap flights operate.

Bolzano has also a train station connected to all major Italian cities.  You can check the train’s schedules on many websites, like trenitalia (and others all around Europe).

More detailed info are also available on South Tyrol website

Reserve your place soon, the conference will be fun and interesting.

Car pooling to Bolzano

On the new list discussions (where Fellows are organizing the next Fellowship Meeting with FSFE Team), Fellow Bjoern compared prices to travel from Stuttgart to the Fellowship Meeting.  It seems that taking the car can be cheapers, so he is offering some place with his car.  I think it’s a good idea and hope that other people can do the same and share car rides to reach Bolzano.  Bjoern also found cheaper hotels.  Good job.

BTW, I would appreciate a ride from Milano 🙂 

Hacker in inglese. Ma in italiano?

Il posto di Davide Cerri stamattina mi ha fatto ricordare una mia fissa sulla traduzione del termine “Hacker” in italiano. Il termine inglese hacker ha radici in hack che vuol dire usare l’ascia, sgrossare, tagliare grossolanamente. Secondo la visione romantica dell’informatica hacker è qualcuno che pensa fuori dal coro, che supera la saggezza comune e…

Le tasse online e la Montblanc

Procede online il dibattito sui servizi telematici obbligatori per comunicare con l’Agenzia delle Entrate. Ne abbiamo parlato anche su GNUvox. Alcuni messaggi su Punto Informatico fanno chiaramente capire che non esiste alcun problema tecnico ad eseguire il programma gratuito distribuito dalla stessa Agenzia anche su GNU/Linux. Altri, governo incluso, suggeriscono di usare l’home banking, giustamente.…

The powers of the Fellows

By talking with members of the Free Software community, I realised that one of the least considered reasons to join is the fact that Fellows can promote their projects, plans and ideas to further Free Software through the Fellowship.  That means having an international audience of 800 (and growing) dedicated and smart people. It also means working directly with FSFE to further Free Software, in your home town as well as in Bruxelles.

There are already example of Fellows proposing projects and using the Fellowship for Free Software.  Stephan, for example, suggested to have an international meeting of Fellows.  Emmanuele proudly used his affiliation in some articles regarding the abuse of electronic scrutiny in past Italian elections.  Shane suggested to use the power of the Fellowship to improve Free Software advocacy

Imagine what you can do with the power of the Fellows. Imagine starting an information campaign about Free Software in your home town or your old school, all with the help and support of FSFE via the Fellowship.  Does it sound good?  Stupid?  Say it, I’m all ears.
