course, it must all be software freedom related.  We could break the day
into 30 minute chunks and delegate those out to people.  We could have

social, legal, philosophical side of software freedom and so on.  These
items should be aimed at the general public who might be interested in
software freedom but might not even know about it yet.

We'll discuss this at July's meeting, on the 19th, and also on this list.

Ideas for possible talk this month, let me know what you think.

Free Hardware talk:
* Libre Tea Computer Card:

* Respect Your Freedom:

* Intel Management Engine:

Vim talk:

Rockbox talk:

* Some who has used Rockbox would have to volunteer to do this talk.

Beagleboards talk:
* http://beagleboard.org/

Or something else.

individual chips to also be free, and for circuit boards to be
verifiable against some known design, but I think if that happens it's
at least five years into the future. For now it's a mixed picture with
possibly bad firmware (not just ME) lurking in the background on
practically all systems.
