The sale of the .ORG registry to Ethos Capital would erode the safeguards nonprofits and NGOs have against arbitrary censorship and price gouging. Sign on to the petition to #SaveDotOrg. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/12/we-need-save-org-arbitrary-censorship-halting-private-equity-buy-out
We are gathered at The Atrium tomorrow to bid farewell to BIOS after 45 years of servicing all the basic ins and outs that you've come to take for granted.
Come to 875 Third Avenue (between 53rd and 54th Streets) as we present BIOS with a golden pocketwatch...
(Who are we kidding? It's just a CR-2032 to power its RTC until it too drops dead from digital deprecation!)

Re: the sudden closure of @HackerRadioShow home WBAI, we have a statement posted at https://www.2600.com/content/lockout-wbai-hook-indefinitely-suspended .
We've arranged a live "Off the Hook" for 7-9 PM this Wednesday the 9th, at the Brooklyn Commons Cafe downstairs from the station. Please spread the word and, if you are in geographic range, PLEASE come join us; a show of numbers is pretty critical.
388 Atlantic Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11217
And please show the cafe some support. They're WBAI's landlord as well, and have also been thrown into peril by the station's closure.
We are working behind the scenes to figure out our next moves, and will talk about it at the event. We're also working on getting it recorded and streamed, we'll keep you posted.
Thanks, everyone. As you can imagine this is pretty daunting, but I'm keeping the faith that this isn't the last you'll hear of @HackerRadioShow.
The FSF is asking members for comments about redefining its relationship with the GNU project, so I encourage you to ask that it strongly distance itself until RMS steps down https://www.fsf.org/news/fsf-and-gnu
