Want to volunteer?

Its nice when I get a chance to make a post thats not challenging innapropriate behaviour, and its also nice to take a break (of sorts) from the usual articles I write.

Over on Twitter, I had the pleasure of meeting the Bullying UK charity, you can visit their website here: http://social.bullying.co.uk/ and make sure you follow their Twitter here: http://twitter.com/bullyinguk

This is the reason why I am creating this article is because they are users of FOSS (as well as being a good cause).

One of the best things FOSS users have is IMO a sense of “community” , afterall we are alone in a world of proprietary software with massive advertising bugets yet still we are able to form communities and help each other.  I am sending my list of skills to this charity as well as finding out their requirements for help for referall to others , I would urge you to do the same.  What better way to do something you enjoy whilst helping a charity? – Its win, win.

They help over 500k people on a very small budget and I’m sure everyone reading this has something to offer the charity in order to support the good work it is doing.  So artists/coders/engineers/users unite and donate your time/skills!

Thanks everyone!

    Wow, that’s quite collective…

    On a side note: I just created a new project on Google Code. I was surprised at how small the selection of licenses are.

    Apparently Google is trying to reduce license proliferation in FOSS projects.

    While that’s a noble goal, I think a vital segment of the FOSS crowd being overlooked are those who dedicate their works to the Public Domain. There should be at least an option to revoke all licensing or release without a license, just a disclaimer.
