Submit your Free Software projects for the Trophees du Libre

Cetril, the “Centre Europeen de Transfert et de Recherche en Informatique Libre” is once again organising the Trophees du Libre, an award for Free Software projects in various categories, focussed on unknown and innovative projects. The web page is now open for registration and you can download the PDF leaflet here. Deadline for registrations is 1 October 2007.

Having participated as part of the jury last year, I can say that this event has left me with a very positive impression: A clear focus on Free Software, professional organisation where the finalists’ present themselves in the afternoon to the responsible parts of the jury, and a very nice award ceremony.

Prizes for the 2007 awards include financial support for the projects from EUR 500 to EUR 3000, laptops, books, and other goodies. The idea of the award is to give new, young and hitherto unknown projects a chance of support, recognition and visibility. So don’t hesitate and submit your project today.

  2. Don’t be afraid to lose. It is natural to want to play against opponents who are at or below your skill level. After all, it’s no fun to constantly lose! There is, however, a major disadvantage to this strategy – there is no incentive to get better. When you are playing against people who are better than you, you will learn from your mistakes and be on their level in no time.

    If you are waiting for the newest gaming systems, be prepared to wait just a little longer. Console gaming systems are typically a loss for the manufacturer. The amount of research and development involved makes them not profitable when released. The manufacturers make the money on the back end on the games and online purchases.
