We're sorry for the delay in publishing the videos from LibrePlanet 2021 -- we faced some unexpected challenges immediately after the event. But they're here now! We're incredibly proud of the two-day, all-online conference, which was a showcase for the efforts of the free software community, with talks ranging from technical how-tos to personal reflections on activism. If you missed the conference when it happened, we encourage you to watch and share the recordings -- these are wildly talented and dedicated people who fight every day for a freer world, generously sharing their time and insights to advance ideals that are bigger than any of us as individuals.

We’re proud to be able to share those accomplishments and insights with you through the videos of the LibrePlanet 2021 conference talks released today on our GNU MediaGoblin and PeerTube pages. These talks explore many of the important facets of the fight for free software, including:

If you missed the last keynote address on Sunday, by Nathan Freitas, founder of the Guardian Project, we urge you to go back and watch it – Nathan’s talk was a highly personal and very fun narrative of his journey as an activist, with a lot of show-and-tell of favorite books and old technology. It’s both entertaining and inspiring, and a definite must-see.

You can also watch Richard Stallman's talk, "Unjust computing clamps down". For more context around his FSF board announcement, see the follow-up statement from the FSF's board of directors.

We’re so grateful for the participation of all of our speakers and attendees, and we hope that next year, in person or online or both, we’ll come together again to learn, discuss, debate, and celebrate the fight for software freedom. Every new user or programmer who adopts free software is a victory, but we’ve got a long way to go before all software is free, and we’ll only reach that goal together.

In solidarity,

The LibrePlanet team
