  9. <h2>I ♥ Free Software</h2>
  10. <p>
  11. Come February 14 and our website will be turning pink and heart-laden to
  12. celebrate the creators of Free Software. We have taken the opportunity
  13. on every Valentine's Day since 2010 to celebrate not only our loved ones,
  14. but also the dedicated people working very hard to ensure that we have
  15. the option to use Free Software.
  16. </p>
  17. <p>
  18. You can read more about
  19. <a href="/news/2014/news-20140221-01.html">how we celebrated</a> the
  20. I ♥ Free Software Day in 2014 to get a feel for the spirit of the
  21. occasion, and you are very welcome to join our celebrations this year!
  22. </p>
  23. <h2>Fellowship elections</h2>
  24. <p>
  25. The <a href="">Fellowship elections</a>
  26. are almost here! Three candidates
  27. (<a href="">Nicolas Dietrich</a>,
  28. <a href="">Max Mehl</a>,
  29. and <a href="">Felix Stegerman</a>)
  30. are vying for the seat currently held by
  31. <a href="/about/ojasild/ojasild.html">Repentinus</a>. Repentinus wishes
  32. them all very well in trying to replace him, and hopes that so shall
  33. you, our dear readers. May the best candidate win!
  34. </p>
  35. <p>
  36. Voting will take place from February 20 to March 6, and all orderly
  37. Fellows whose membership is active on February 19, 2015, 12am (UTC+1)
  38. are allowed to vote. So there is still plenty of time to
  39. <a href="">renew your Fellowship</a>
  40. and to become able to make a difference.
  41. </p>
  42. <h2>Transitions</h2>
  43. <p>
  44. Whoever becomes the new Fellowship Representative will be joining a
  45. <a href="/about/team.html">Core Team</a> very different to that joined
  46. by Repentinus almost two years ago.
  47. </p>
  48. <p>
  49. First, we expect to take on
  50. Jonas Öberg as Executive
  51. Director around the same time the new Fellowship Representative will
  52. be joining the Core Team and the General Assembly. Furthermore, later
  53. in the year when the General Assembly will be holding its annual meeting,
  54. we will be electing a new President. It is expected that the GA will
  55. confirm our current Vice President
  56. <a href="/about/people/kirschner/kirschner.html">Matthias Kirschner</a> as the
  57. new President. These changes have been internally known for quite some
  58. time, but were
  59. <a href="">publicly announced</a>
  60. by our President <a href="/about/people/gerloff/gerloff.html">Karsten Gerloff</a>
  61. only on January 26.
  62. </p>

  66. Our staffers, volunteers, and Fellows are often present at various Free
  67. Software gatherings. If you have always wondered what goes on at these

  75. <ul>
  76. <li>
  77. Paul Boddie <a href="">writes</a>
  78. about the inadequate coverage topics like interoperability and
  79. platform choice have received in the past from consumer magazines.
  80. He notes how the advent of multiple mobile ecosystems is forcing
  81. consumer magazines to acknowledge the problem, and invites a major
  82. consumer magazine to join the push for interoperable Free
  83. Software.
  84. </li>
  85. <li>
  86. Guido Arnold, our Education team coordinator, has posted his

  112. <h2>Get active: hug a developer</h2>
  113. <p>
  114. For February we would like all of you to join us in celebrating developers
  115. of Free Software. Come 14th, please send developers, translators, and
  116. artists e-mail, postcards, and cake, hug them (with permission, of

  118. just how much you appreciate them and the work they have put into Free
  119. Software you use every day.
