Hey, guys. Have you seen Jupiter Broadcasting? That should be a good way to promote free software as well as Trisquel OS, don't you think?

The Linux Action Show really turned me off. They're all "Linux", "Linux", "Linux" and "open source", "open source", "open source." So, to answer your question, since they're really conveying the message of freedom in their episodes, I'm not sure it would be. They'd need to first change their show around and I don't get the feeling that the hosts would be interested in that.

No, I mean... XD Why don't we do something "like" that to promote free software?

I'm actually working in some projects in the Spanish forum in which I would be translating several things for them. This page isn't all translated in Spanish even though the creator was Spanish himself.
I'll translate some free software speeches, like Richard Stallman's. I will also edit some tutorials for the new people, in order to get more people involved. But I was wondering if we could work in something like this here in the English Forum. I'm not a native speaker, so it would be kind of odd for natives to be listening to me, I'm not that bad in english, but I mean, a native speaker can easly notice that this is not my first language! XD

They already reviewed it: http://www.jupiterbroadcasting.com/23996/

Oh and regarding free software, one of their most controversial episodes is when they interviewed RMS: http://www.jupiterbroadcasting.com/17822/

Oops, your YouTube link and my link to the Trisquel review on LAS lead to the same content.

Yeah, that happens to me very often! XD (I comment without noticing that someone else already put that content on his comment) XD

But that's ok, I guess... (Y)

Yeah, I know they did review it. But I mean, why don't we do something "like" what they're doing but "just" to promote free software! And yeah, I also watched the interview they did with Richard Stallman! That was, was... funny! XD

That wasn't the end of it. The next episode pretty much consisted entirely of attacking Stallman's character (without him being there, of course). I don't think they even did much of their usual stuff in that episode.

What's the name of the next episode you're talking about? -I want to watch that!-

We can promote free software in this mode:
