How do I log in?

One of these:

  • look in ~freecult/passwords on the freeculture.org machine
  • Ask the right person. This might include any of:
    • Any board members since 2009
    • Parker Phinney

How do posts happen?

  • People with the passwords can post but only a few do on a regular basis
  • Posts to identi.ca automagically go to Twitter
  • Posts to twitter do not go automagically go to identi.ca
  • Pretty much anyone who @s freeculture will be re-tweeted
  • board@ gets pinged by identi.ca about followers and mentions

What is appropriate to post?

Driscoll's idiosyncratic criteria for posting with @freeculture has been:

  • News about the org
  • News about a chapter
  • News about a member
  • Something cool that a chapter/member is doing or has written (new projects, blog posts)
  • Take-action items of interest to chapters/members
  • News from affiliated groups of interest to chapters/members (e.g.

Public Knowledge reacts to something happening in Congress)
