    Jim’s interview with Binary Freedom

    Our fearless Jim Hutchinson (CoLoCo Educational Director) recently did an interview with Binary Freedom. In this interview Jim talks about his recent Post that he did on his blog in response to an article in Discover Magazine by Jaron Lanier. A lot of you may have read this already or seen it on Digg.

    Who is Binary Freedom and what they are about by ringokamens:

    Binary Freedom is an association of decentralized collectives that
    fights for digital rights and the other social movements that it is
    related to such as privacy, free speech, and social justice. We
    emphasize the use of direct action because of its effectiveness are
    are mostly engaged in legislative advocacy and education about free
    software/digital rights. We do all of this with a focus on free
    software and the ideals presented in the hacker ethic and dot
    communist manifesto. Campaigns lead by Binary Freedom activists have
    been featured on US News, Slashdot, Digg, Indymedia, CNN, and others.

    New IRC Channel

    We have now joined the trend in using a more official and standard IRC channel with the rest of the other locos. The new channel can be reached at #ubuntu-us-co on The hopes for doing this change is to allow for a more convention irc channel name with the rest of the LoCos. As well as make it easier for new members to find us by sticking to this convention. The old channel is still up as well. So if you have fliers out or contact information to the old channel. They still will work. All who attempt to connect to this channel will be redirected into the new one.

    We are also looking at logging all conversations in the IRC channel to allow for other members to review what has gone on in the day. As well as give a means for those that miss meetings to view the meeting notes. We hope this idea will be beneficial to all current and new members once in place.

    We hope all enjoy these changes and ideas to come.
