Henry George School of Chicago is an independent nonprofit school of political economy, teaching primarily based on works of Henry George and others with compatible ideas. Our operations use mainly open source software.

We'll be showing some videos dealing with open source, what it is, why it's essential for security, and how ill-conceived government practices prevent it. The program will be of interest to Georgists who want to learn more about how “intellectual” “property” interests restrict our freedom, to open source advocates concerned about the broader political economy in which we live, and to everyone concerned about freedom and security. It is of course open to the public without charge.

location: 30 E Adams #1207, Chicago 60603, USA
information: hgchicago.org/events
Date & Time: Tuesday May 3, 5pm to 8:30.
email contact: address@hidden
voice phone: 312 450 2906

The tentative list of videos we'll see:

  • User Liberation (introduction to software freedom, without an obvious title) Free Software Foundation (2:53)

  • Freedom in my Heart: Lessons from a Cyborg Lawyer Karen Sandler (48:34)
  • Why is Free Software Important Richard Stallman (7:28)
  • Kill All DRM Software in the World Forever, Within a Decade Cory Doctorow (58:27)
  • Clouds of Loving Grace: the other war on general-purpose computing Alistair Croll (9:28)
  • Fighting Back in the War on General Purpose Computers Cory Doctorow (50:56)

All of these are cc-licensed.  Thanks for the creators and to FSF for making this event possible.

I'll be facilitating discussions between and/or behind the videos.  I'm an instructor at the School, equally unqualified to discuss software and law.

I will put this information on the Libreplanet wiki whenever I figure out how to do that.
