[Blog] Report from our German speaking team meeting 2014

11 July 2014:

From 13 – 15 June 2014 FSFE had its German speaking team meeting in the Linuxhotel in Essen. The participants had some problems to travel there because of the chaos resulting from a heavy thunderstorm in the region. A lot of train lines where not functional, and the situation on the streets was also chaotic. But just because no ICE trains stop in Essen does not mean we will not continue our work for Free Software. In the end we were able to bring all volunteers to the Linuxhotel to plan further activities and discuss current issues.

They explain the installation of the necessary programs for e-mail encryption under GNU/Linux, MacOS, and Microsoft Windows; the key generation; the web of trust; as well as the usage of those programs.

24 September 2014

Das nächste reguläre Fellowshiptreffen in Düsseldorf findet im Chaosdorf, Hüttenstr. 25, 40215 Düsseldorf statt, offizieller Beginn um 20:00 Uhr. "Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est." (deutsch: "Denn jede Sache, die durch Mitteilung an andere nicht verliert, besitzt man nicht, wie man soll, solange man sie nur selber besitzt, ohne sie wieder an andere weiterzugeben.") ist ein Motto der FSFE aus ihrer frühen Zeit. Diese Erkenntnis ist jedoch etwa 1600 Jahre alt. Ralf Peter Reimann, Diplom-Informatiker und Pastor, wird uns in seinem Vortrag Sinn und Inhalt dieses Satzes erläutern und auch seinen Urheber vorstellen. Gäste sind wie immer herzlich willkommen.
