<h1>#ilovefs Report 2014</h1>
<p newsteaser="yes">On February 14th, people all around the world expressed
their gratitude and appreciation not only to their partner but also to Free
Software and its contributors. With our yearly #ilovefs we asked you to
thank your favourite developers and projects and were overwhelmed by the
resonance in <a href="#id-more-blog-posts">blogs</a>, <a href=
"https://twitter.com/search?q=%23ilovefs">social networks</a>, and mailing
lists.</p>
<div class="captioned right" style="max-width: 600px; width: 30%;">

<p>Developers and contributors of Free Software projects work hard to ensure
our freedom and on this day surely many of them gained new motivation. Thank
you for participating in this year's #ilovefs campaign and enjoy some of the
many love declarations we collected:</p>
<p>Adrienne sees Free Software as an important part of her life and explains
why <a href="http://cracktheplates.com/2014/02/i-love-free-software/
">even little steps in using Free Software are meaningful</a>:</p>
<blockquote><p>I use it because it is written by people who care deeply
about what they do, and who want to keep improving. It reminds me of the
Hebrew phrase <em>tikkun olam</em>, which means repairing (or healing) the
world. Free Software means you can read the code, which means you can
improve it — and then pass it on for the better. Free Software repairs the
world by advancing projects made with integrity to people who need them,
free of charge. One day, I hope to contribute code to projects that people
use every day.</p></blockquote>

<p>Tamara was an intern in a local hacklab and says that <a href=
"http://tamaraatanasoska.wordpress.com/2014/02/14/i-love-free-software/">
knowing and teaching the ideology and message of Free Software is
crucial</a>:</p>
<blockquote><p>What is really important is that they, while teaching me the
purely technical stuff about Linux and helping me with programming, were
insisting that I know and get familiar with the ideology and what stands
behind Free Software, and why is it crucial to us. They gave me
documentaries to watch, they talked, shared, repeated. And I thank them. I
am a better person and hacker and have made friends for life.</p></blockquote>
<p>For Anna, Free Software is especially interesting when <a href=
"http://www.phplist.com/?lid=635">mixed with other aspects of an open society
</a>:</p>
<blockquote><p>Today, February the 14th, is an international celebration of
our love... for Free Software! People love it for all sorts of reasons, but
for me, it's about the creative freedom that Free Software brings, with new
software and new skills just a sudo yum install away. I feel especially
blessed when Free Software meets Open Culture; then the party really gets
started! </p></blockquote>
<h3>#ilovefs is crossing borders</h3>
<div class="captioned left" style="max-width: 650px; width: 40%;">

</div>
<p>One speciality of #ilovefs is the broadband of people expressing their
love for Free Software. Year after year we recognise that Free Software is
not only a topic for programmers and professional users but for many groups
of people: the average computer users, artists, journalists, companies, and
among them also politicians. This year the parliamentary group of the Green
party in Germany <a href="http://gruen-digital.de/2014/02/we-free-software/">
wrote how important Free Software is in times of global surveillance and in
general</a>. And as a small extra they also sent a nice picture, which
deserves much respect considering the stressful schedule of politicians.</p>

Free Software" width="100%" /></a>
</div>
<p>There were also several events which focussed on "I Love Free Software
Day". In Manchester, <a href=
"http://freeasinfreedom.org.uk/what-we-did-becase-we-love-free-software/">
Free Software was even celebrated with a week-long festival</a> full of
workshops about Bitcoin, encryption, Wordpress and Free Your Android. Anna
and the other volunteers had a very busy week with co-organising it but it
was worth it: More than 100 people were learning, teaching and having fun
with Free Software!</p>
