I have some great news about Boston Public Schools and free software. You may know that my Co-op has been hosting some Boston Public School courses over the summer using free software.
Assessments of student progress shows that the teachers that stuck with BBB had better assessment scores for their students!! Especially the Math teachers. Scores were SIGNIFICANTLY higher by about 10-15 percentage points and it is believed that is because BBB allowed for student engagement more than Zoom did.

Been playing with Ardour lately (a full-blown commercial-grade #FOSS Digital Audio Workstation)... version 6 has just been released, and it's impressive. Wow. Audio-wonks and sound engineers, have a look!

Running a Rocket.Chat... it ain't rocket science. It's easy peasy. Everyone can do it.

I must say, I'm pretty excited to be part of the initiative (see - Open Educational Resources + Free and Open Source Software are the fastest, lowest cost, and most equitable way there is to help people emerge from the COVID crisis and arrive in a *better* place then where they came from. And we're doing it *together*.
