<li>North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany's most populated state, is having general elections on 14 May 2017. The FSFE joined a "coalition of Free knowledge" which has developed for the first time a <a href="https://www.digital-o-mat.de/">"Digital-o-Mat"</a>. The "Digital-o-Mat" is a tool to help those voters who are concerned about digital rights and freedoms, to decide about which party to vote for during these elections. Eight questions guide users to choose their own preferences on important topics about digital society - for example questions about the use of Free Software, Open Data or Open Educational Resources. After filling them out, users will see which party matches best with their own preferences and they can additionally browse detailed explanations on the party's positions regarding each topic. The interface for North-Rhine Westphalia is in German, the <a href="https://github.com/dsstio/digital-o-mat">underlying Software</a> however is Free Software and free to adopt for other purposes.</li>

<li>On the <a href="http://planet.fsfe.org/">FSFE's Planet</a>, we had an interesting dialogue popping up between our executive director Jonas Öberg, the FSFE's executive director, who argues that <a href="http://blog.jonasoberg.net/using-proprietary-software-for-freedom/">sometimes you can use proprietary software to further free and open source software</a> although you should be aware about the risk of backfiring. And Daniel Pocock, our new Fellowship representative, answered with <a href="https://danielpocock.com/risks-of-using-proprietary-software">"the risk of proprietary software"</a> and that "no deal might be better than a bad deal", meaning that if you cannot achieve something with Free Software you should consider just doing without it.</li>

<li>Paul Hänsch, one of the FSFE's system administrators, organised the very <a href="https://wiki.fsfe.org/Teams/WikiCaretakers/Hackathon2017">first physical wiki caretakers meeting</a>. The <a href="https://wiki.fsfe.org/Teams/WikiCaretakers">wiki caretakers are a team of volunteers</a> who help to organise information inside the wiki and make it easy for others to contribute.</li>
