The FSFE Fellowship group of Slovenia and the Kiberpipa/Cyberpipe hackerspace are cooperating yet again to promote open formats and open standards – this year in the brand new and improved location of Kiberpipa!

A seguito degli ottimi risultati conseguiti nelle edizioni 2012 e 2013, la collaborazione tra FSUGItalia ed il Liceo Scientifico F.Redi di Arezzo si è ampliata, realizzando un percorso formativo sperimentale per gli studenti. Durante tale percorso, composto da una serie di incontri mensili, lezioni frontali e attività autonoma verificata attraverso la rete, gli studenti, hanno appreso le basi fondamentali del software libero e dei suoi principi etici, ed hanno acquisito le abilità per realizzare presentazioni “veloci” sulle varie argomentazioni trattate. In questa edizione del DFD, saranno gli studenti stessi a realizzare quasi tutti gli interventi della giornata, con una serie di “Lightining Talk” (interventi veloci mirati a massimizzare la comunicazione) atti ad introdurre il pubblico al software libero, agli standard aperti, ai contenuti Creative Commons, oltre che a fornire numerosi esempi di software libero.

Comunidad LibreOffice Argentina

Charlas del Día del Documento Libre in Posadas, Argentina

26 March 2014 organized by Comunidad LibreOffice Argentina

¿Qué implica un 'Documento Libre'? Los documentos que son libres pueden ser usados de cualquier manera que el autor quiera. Pueden ser leidos, transmitidos, editados y transformados usando gran variedad de herramientas. Los documentos que no son libres, en cambio, están atados a un determinado produto o los intereses de una compañía. El autor no puede escoger como utilizarlos porque son controlados mediante restricciones técnicas, como un auto poderoso que está restringido a un velocidad determinada. ¿Sólo se relaciona con documentos? ¡No! La libertad para controlar el trabajo creativo es más que sólo textos y hojas de cálculo - La libertad es sobre todos los tipos de datos, incluyendo trabajos artísticos, música en papel o grabada, correos electrónicos y estadísticas. Pueden ser guardados en formas que potencian a los usuarios, o también en formatos que restrinjan y manipulen a un costo enorme.

Pamukkale University Free Software Community

PAU Document Freedom Party in Denizli, Turkey

26 March 2014 organized by Pamukkale University Free Software Community

We are celebrating Document Freedom Day as PAU Free Software Community. We made revolution at Pamukkale University. It's our second event and for us that is one more step to freedom.

Document Freedom Day 2014 in Tokyo is a very casual style dinner party talking about document freedom and importance of open standards. Most attendees might be a Japanese, but non-Japanese speakers are also welcome. You can register in the site below if you can read/write Japanese, or just contact me is fine. This event is suported by LibreOffice Japanese team.

Document Freedom Day e um dia para celebrar e alertar sobre Normas e Formatos Abertos, que acontece na última quarta-feira de Março de cada ano. Neste dia pessoas que acreditam no acesso justo às tecnolocias de comunicação ensinam, executam e demonstram. O que é 'Liberdade Documental'? Documentos que são livres podem ser usados de qualquer forma que o autor queira. Eles podem ser lidos, transmitidos, editados e transformados usando uma variedade de ferramentas. Documentos que não são livres estão presos a um determinado produto ou companhia. O autor não pode escolher como usá-los porque eles são controlados por restrições técnicas, como um carro poderoso que está restrito artificialmente à velocidade de 30Km/h. É só relacionado com documentos? Não! Liberdade para controlar o seu trabalho criativo é sobre mais do que só textos e folhas de cálculo - Liberdade Documental é sobre todos os tipos de dados, incluindo artwork, música em papel ou gravada, e-mails e estatísticas. Estes podem ser guardados em formas que potenciam os utilizadores, mas podem também ser guardados em formatos que nos restringem e manipulam a um custo enorme.

Spread the word of using Open Standard formats to teachers, alumni and all the other staff through the mails, web and live.

Encryption, Free Software And Open Standards In The European Parliament Edward Snowden stated in June 2013: "Encryption works. Properly implemented strong crypto systems are one of the few things that you can rely on". This is why the Greens/EFA 4th Document Freedom Day is hosting a seminar on Free Software and Open Standards to discuss how cryptography can break the grip of the surveillance state and a workshop on trustworthy encryption in the European Parliament. The event is solution-oriented, both in terms of current efforts in different technologist communities, and in terms of concrete action, here and now, in the European Parliament.

This is the first activity that addresses the holding of open standards under the virtual format , is organized by Headquarters DFD Merida Venezuela by the Academy of Free Technologies and Social Media - ATELIS with the participation and collaboration of other international locations that are of the Document Freedom Day . This initiative was created in order to share experiences , encouraging collective participation of various groups and communities that promote free knowledge , open standards and free culture in general. We know that many people would like to participate in classroom events organized by various local groups however for various reasons it would be difficult for some to attend, this event promotes inclusive participation to all those wishing to participate in this as a means of using the internet .

Document Freedom Day 2014 in Linz Austria in Linz, Austria

26 March 2014 organized by FSFE Fellowship Group Linz

We celebrate Document Freedom Day 2014 in Linz, Austria by putting up an information booth in the most busy shopping street at the center of Linz. We will distribute leaflets and flyers. Amongst other things, we will try to explain to passersby why Open Standards are important in this day and age.

Friends of the African Union aim, this day, is to present the framework to address the global literacy crisis in the African Union and provide opportunities for participants to develop strategic plans, exchange information, find solutions and build partnerships to improve literacy standards worldwide. We will have a conference call on this at 213.493.0700 pin 106132# at 6PM EST today.

Friends of the African Union is creating a unified open source and documented based solution to literacy using the African Union's Agenda 2063. Agenda 2063 is both a Vision and an Action Plan. It is a call for action to all segments of African society to work together to build a prosperous and united Africa based on shared values and a common destiny. In their 50th Anniversary Solemn Declaration, the Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU), while acknowledging past successes and challenges, rededicated themselves to the continent’s accelerated development and technological progress.

Friends of the African Union is creating for Agenda 2063 a plan of action this year for information accessibility and how to raise awareness of Open Standards in the African union's 6 regions with a 2014 emphasis on North America. Our initial demonstration city is Cincinnati, Ohio and centered around STEM based education and a FAME based after school program.

Friends of the African Union was asked by the African Union in August 2013 to the First African Union Consultation Meeting with the Diaspora on the African Union Agenda 2063 - New York, United States of America Oct. 8th through the 10th 2013. There we presented a 8 point framework for the creation of a public private partnership to be called the United States of Africa.

In our plan in the USA we plan to create a network where we install in each region at least 21,000 racks that are feed by fiber which contain the following:

Each rack could contain:

  • Electrical Power Supply Monitor
  • Alternative Power Supply Manager
  • Gas Control
  • Open Sourced Center Controller
  • [Optional Coal Control Center]
  • Water Distribution Solutions Systems Manager
  • Hot Water Controller
  • Infrastructure Defense Controller
  • 365 Digital Security Solution Manager
  • Household Connectivity and Control System
  • Countermeasures and Module Module
  • Secure Personal SOHO + Household Wayback Machine
  • Graphic User Interface and Contract AI
  • Total Knowledge Management Storage
  • Social Media and SOHO Personal Assistant Dock
  • Office Applications Manager
  • Output Device Manager
  • SOHO I/O Manager with Universal Print Server
  • Core Computing
  • Digital Cloud Storage
  • 700Mhz Repeater
  • WiMax Repeater
  • WiFi X Node
  • Frequency Shifting, Spread Spectrum and 5G Transceiver incl but not limited to FM, AM, ARRLl SSB + Mars
  • NOAA Connectivity and Real Time Analysis Package

Para integrar as atividades comemorativas do Document Freedom Day, o Governo Estadual vai realizar no dia 26 de março evento com transmissão ao vivo pela Internet, por meio do Gabinete Digital com apoio da PROCERGS. Na ocasião, será lançado um vídeo no qual o Governador Tarso Genro fala sobre os aspectos e benefícios dos formatos abertos e sua utilização no Estado. Haverá, ainda, vídeoconferência com Eliane Domingos, vice-presidente da The Document Foundation. O secretário-geral de Governo, Vinícius Wu, fará a palestra de abertura do evento. O Governo do Estado do Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil, sancionou, em 2012, a Lei 14.009, que dispõe sobre a adoção de formatos abertos de arquivos para criação, armazenamento e disponibilização digital de documentos. Possui, ainda, um plano em andamento para adoção de padrões abertos em documentos digitais pela Administração Pública Estadual. A Secretaria-Geral de Governo, por meio do Departamento de Tecnologia da Informação e Telecomunicações, conduz o processo migração para formatos abertos no Governo do Estado.

The local Fellowship group of the FSFE is going to do an information desk in the most buzy shopping street of Vienna. Last Year we shared lots of information material and had many contacts with interested bassers by.

The Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (AITI-KACE) will mark the annual celebration of Open standards and information accessibility, Document Freedom Day (DFD) on Wednesday March 26, 2014 in Accra. The theme for this year's celebration, “Freedom to Read, Freedom to Write, Freedom to Communicate” focuses on the need for Government, public institutions, private organisations and individuals alike to use and promote the use of Open documents and Open standards. DFD 2014 will be held at AITI-KACE and will feature keynotes by public officials, inspiring talks and lively debates. These would be interspersed with break-out sessions, case studies of best practicing organizations and distribution of free resources. The annual global event attracts government officials, public organisations, educational institutions, private, non-governmental organisations, students and the general public. The event promises to increase awareness for open standards and advocate for its adoption by Government and other groups of influence. Speaking ahead of the event, the Director-General of AITI-KACE, Dorothy K. Gordon underscored the importance of the DFD cause, “As the way we live and communicate becomes more digital by the day, it is crucial that we are able to access, use and exchange information freely without any limitations today or tomorrow”.

    O incentivo à produção do conhecimento, à sua divulgação e ao seu acesso e uso pela sociedade são as bases para a legislação do copyright. Mas será que esse mecanismo atende esses objetivos da melhor maneira possível na sociedade e na economia contemporâneas?

Mostraremos a força do desenvolvimento colaborativo e o vigor de uma ideia cuja hora tinha chegado e pedia para que fossemos ousados e determinados.

    A incompatibilidade entre os mais diferentes softwares para edição e visualização de imagens vetoriais ou bitmap no mundo do software proprietário, ou a obsolescência programada dos formatos proprietários, obrigam empresas e usuários adquirir uma nova licença de uso.

Am jährlichen Document Freedom Day werden weltweit Internetauftritte ausgezeichnet, die offene Standards, insbesondere maschinenlesbare Dokumente, anbieten. Leider wird Berlin wieder leer ausgehen. Dabei liegt der Nutzen offener Dokumente auf der Hand. Gut verwendet können offene Daten dazu beitragen, im Straßenverkehr Staus zu vermeiden oder Angebote beziehungsweise Störungen im ÖPNV schnell und umfassend zu kommunizieren. Erhöhte Lärm- oder Staubwerte können belegt werden, der Vergleich von Aktenteilen zur Aufklärung des BER-Debakels wird erleichtert. Es gibt enorm viele ausgezeichnete Gründe, Dokumente digital, frei und in offenen Formaten zu publizieren. Deshalb haben wir ein Video zum Document Freedom Day gemacht: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LX8hjT35_Xc Leider zeigt der Berliner Senat seit dem Start des Open-Data-Portals wenig Engagement. Der wegweisenden Studie des Fraunhofer-Institutes folgte keine Umsetzungsstrategie. Die Wirtschaftsverwaltung taucht ab, die Innenverwaltung ist im Ausschuss regelmäßig nur bedingt auskunftsfähig. Das Landesportal wird nur unstrukturiert und in Einzelprojekten fortgeführt. Das reicht nicht aus. Der Berliner Senat ist gefordert, die digitalen Schätze zu heben und zu teilen - denn dieser Schatz gehört allen Berlinerinnen und Berlinern. Von der symbolischen Auszeichnung des Document Freedom Day, der obligatorischen Torte, ist Berlin daher leider zu Recht noch weit entfernt.

This matter is important for non profit organisations, which encounters problems adopting Free Software and Open Standards in their internal structures, as the public administration asks them to communicate with them by proprietary technologies. Despite the lack of awareness about this problem in the civil society, this problem has deep repercussions in our daily lives, along with other aspects as fair trade, recycling or responsible tourism.

30 March 2011

In the Paul-Henri Spaak building of the European Parliament (room 4B001), there will be an event on Open Standars to emphasize the opportunities offered by digital technologies to broaden access to culture in Europe and in the world.

The three following speakers are invited:

  • Stefan Gradmann is Professor of Library and Information Science at Humboldt-University in Berlin with a focus on knowledge management and semantics based operations. He is also a leader of Europeana's technical work package on semantic interoperability and one of the main contributors to the Europeana Data Model (EDM). Previously, Stefan was director of the German Academic Publishers Project, and a technical co-ordinator of the EC-funded FIGARO project - both were concerned with Open Access. He was also an international advisor for the ACLS Commission on Cyberinfrastructure for the Humanities and Social Sciences, contributing to the report Our Cultural Commonwealth. The overall focus of his work is an integrated view of the scholarly information lifecycle. He puts emphasis on interoperability and open methods of modeling the scholarly information continuum - both in technical terms and in an e-scholarship perspective.
  • Håkon Wium Lie is Chief Technology Officer of Opera Software. He proposed the concept of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) while working with Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau at CERN in 1994, CSS being one of the fundamental web standards, with profound impact on typography, aesthetics, and accessibility on the web. In 2006, Wium Lie started campaigning for browsers to support downloadable web fonts using common font formats. As of 2009, all major browser vendors except Microsoft have implemented web fonts this way.
