Congratulations, it is an FSF!

It is done. The world has another Free Software Foundation.

As my personal highlight of the 5tas Jornadas Regionales de Software Libre in Rosario, Argentina, the Free Software Foundation Latin America (FSFLA) has just been officially introduced and the bylaws have been signed.

The general assembly of FSFLA elected Federico Heinz as President, Alexandre Oliva as Secretary and Beatriz Busaniche as Treasurer.

The introduction session was a very emotional moment for everyone involved, and I had the fantastic job of welcoming the FSF Latin America in the global network of FSFs, with special warm regards from Free Software Foundation Europe.

Once I get to download the pictures, I will put some online here.

But now it is time to enjoy the closing ceremony of the event, and then go to celebrate the birth of another FSF with all the people here in Rosario.

    Congratulations to all who are involved

    I hope that the FSFLA becomes an important socio-political organization just as their older sisters.
