Link: Free Software Foundation (FSF) Vision Survey

Activism

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is doing a survey until the end of January 2016:

Free Software Foundation (FSF) Vision Survey

And here's the FSF.org blog post about the survey.

The FSF is also trying to raise $450,000 by January 31st, 2016. They're already most of the way there - as I write this, it says "370,295 so far" at the top of this page.


The Eryss astrology software is, and always will be, free (as in freedom), libre, and open source.

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4

Astronomy

An interesting astronomy blog:

The Search for Planet Nine

And no, they're not looking for Pluto. Pluto did not go missing. :-)


An amusing article from Mother Jones, Jan. 20, 2016:

Scientists Discover "Most Planet-y" Planet in the Solar System


I found both those links via astronomer Mike Brown's Twitter page.
