FOSS Tutorials

Worcester farm group is interested in having some FOSS tutorials. Perhaps:

  • how to do basic labels in GIMP,
  • work through a few sample spreadsheets related to seed cost and
  • similarly applicable real-world situations, depending on the needs of the group

Basically how to do graph design & product management with open source tools. Malt will put together a one paragraph description of what we need and we can mail it out to ask pirates to help.

[9:09pm] malt: strongly oppose that one
[9:09pm] malt: ok!
[9:10pm] jokeefe: Pirate_Joe, did you get a chance to write the statement?
[9:10pm] malt: i support endorsing donate your vote, i think it'd be interesting to try reaching out to non-voters
[9:12pm] Pirate_Joe left the chat room. (Quit: https://webchat.pirateirc.net/)
[9:12pm] malt:
[9:12pm] jokeefe: looks like Pirate_Joe has technical difficulties
[9:13pm] jokeefe: Join the Donate Your Vote campaign? This campaign aims to reverse this injustice by allowing people on the outside to donate their vote to people on the inside. It mostly looks like it encourages an open dialog with people in prison so their perspective is reflected in your vote.

[9:16pm] jokeefe: ahoy
[9:16pm] Pirate_Joe: Sorry
