Subject: Re: Welcome team progress, local groups interest
Very happy with knowing the group exists and will progress. Welcome to
you! Personally I am very intetested in these matters as I think free
software is so much technical-focus, and not user enough. The result is
that our ethical is not growing up. There are technical things to fix
sure, but especially a political message to promote and which is not
understandable enough today. I think social contract in Debian gives
means to promote free software as a universal way to do computer,
provided computer is accessible regardless physical disability; and to
reach everyone, computing needs to be supported by hyman sciences (so
any techno should be provided with, if needed, easy ways to be supported
by someone, physically or remotely.
Hence some questions:
1. Should not Welcope team have a mailing list? IRC is mainly used by
2. Should not Debian have an official Facebook group, to reach another
kind of users?
Idem for other social networks.
