I just learned that CENATIC has proposed the International Free Software Community as a whole as candidates for the Príncipe de Asturias Prize.
There's a web page where people can support this proposal. In it, it can be read (my personal translation) that:
"The International Free Software Community is the group of people and organizations from around the world that contribute to free software through a collaborative and open model based on freedom, sharing of knowledge, collaboration, meritocracy and respect for authors' rights with actions like development, disclosure, promotion, documentation, testing, organization, support and marketing of free software. Free Software has allowed generalization of knowledge and access to technology worldwide getting rid of economical, social, cultural, and language barriers".
It'd be nice if you provided your support for this proposal. On the left side of the page, there's a blue square bellow a text that says "Apoya la candidatura". The boxes are:
- ID Card (???)
- Entity (organization, I suppose)
- email (required)
- Brief comment
- Then a checkbox specifying that you have read the legal warning.
- Submission button.
Hope you find it worthy of your support. Remember, it's here.
