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.

MaltToday at 9:20 PM
AsamonDajinToday at 9:21 PM
It seems not
jokeefeToday at 9:21 PM
Skipping to H.R.6729 then
The bill hasn't made progress in the Senate from what I can see
What steps should we take now?
MaltToday at 9:22 PM
flyer at the sex worker event?
jokeefeToday at 9:23 PM
good idea.
could also have a petition that we drop off on that day or the next weekday
MxkeKBkQuC6uUAGhlAVYToday at 9:24 PM
i reached out to A. Vitale for advice, may be they could advice re: leading up to event
AsamonDajinToday at 9:24 PM
We could see if we can get volunteers to call/email the reps on it as well.
jokeefeToday at 9:24 PM
12/17 is a monday
A call in on that day is a good idea.
MaltToday at 9:26 PM
a good cold day activity
jokeefeToday at 9:26 PM
Though it may be more effective to just have people call leading up to the 17th
MxkeKBkQuC6uUAGhlAVYToday at 9:26 PM
re: https://www.versobooks.com/books/2752-revolting-prostitutes
Verso Books is the largest independent, radical publishing house in the English-speaking world.
authors twitter has plenty of hashtag/references to contact, hopefully in baystate
MaltToday at 9:27 PM
jokeefeToday at 9:27 PM
thanks for the link @MxkeKBkQuC6uUAGhlAVY
So calls, petition and an event on 12/17?
AsamonDajinToday at 9:29 PM
Not necessarily in that order.
And the event could include a part for us all to call as well.
jokeefeToday at 9:31 PM
call early, call often :smiley:
AsamonDajinToday at 9:32 PM
I dont mind springing for the art supplies to make signs but someone else has to draw/write them. (No o e would be able to read them if I did it.)
jokeefeToday at 9:32 PM
Go Sox!
MxkeKBkQuC6uUAGhlAVYToday at 9:33 PM
