It's unacceptable in 2020 if politicians are prevented from exercising their mandates due to lack of interoperability. Pirates have been warning against this trap of proprietary tools for years. I'll keep pushing the services to fix this. Thanks to @email@example.com for jumping in!
Did you see our blog post last week? @AstorNC@twitter.com of @OpenForumEurope@twitter.com describes how the EU Copyright Directive alsmost killed code sharing platforms and calls for #OpenSource advocates to change their approach. https://ossg.bcs.org/blog/2020/03/20/we-need-to-change-the-way-we-advocate-for-open/
While working from home, we took a look back at our successful Pre-FOSDEM #OpenSource #Policy Meeting. With around 100 people we discussed the crucial role OS can play in ensuring open, competitive markets and technological independence in Europe.
A huge shout out to the over 40 OSS enthusiasts who joined our @OSOReu@twitter.com workshop on Sustainable public sector OSS communities at @firstname.lastname@example.org !🥰

Just finished attending and enjoying 1-day OpenForumAcademy by @OpenForumEurope@twitter.com, focused on open source hardware and software, and presented on @CHIPSAlliance@twitter.com. Thanks @firstname.lastname@example.org for invitation!
Discovering from the current speaker at the @OpenForumEurope@twitter.com workshop that some standards we thought were OK actually have royalty-required normative references in them, not covered by any patent waiver/covenants otherwise attached to the standard.
„This study needs the contribution of the community, we need your knowledge. Please approach us now or send an email to email@example.com to contact us“
„Policymakers need the evidence that Open Source is a huge economic factor and that is why we are very glad to conduct a study to determine the economic value of Open Source in Europe“ -Paula
„When fighting for an Open Source exclusion the change really happened when the software team at a big German industrial contacted their policy people. After that within two weeks the text of the Copyright Directive changed“ -Astor
„We need to couple reactive activism with really effective advocacy. We need to monitor and be active three years earlier in the process“ -Astor
„The Age of Regulation is coming up and every single new law will have digital parts. We need to mature open source advocacy to make sure Open Source is not broken on the way“ -Astor
