The LinuxChix site and email delivery has moved to slower hosting due to a change in one of the maintainer's employment situation. This means, in particular, that list email delivery will be very slow as outgoing mail from the server is heavily throttled.

September 10th 2005 is the second annual Software Freedom Day, a global activism day for grassroots efforts to educate the public about Free and Open Source software. You can see if anything is happening in your area by visiting the SFD teams listing.

I've created a new section of the LinuxChix site: LinuxChix for researchers. It has two aims: to help researchers working on "women in Free Software" and related topics, and to help us help them by getting them to work with existing research rather than attempting to create it from scratch. (Linux chix have been asked to take part in a number of very similar surveys over the years).
Does anyone have any entries for the bibliography?
