Thanks Zak.

    Are you aware of local FSF chapters or user groups that meet in
person? I'm thinking about organizing such a group with the goal of
educating members of my community about free software, having free
software distribution installation events and discussing privacy
protection tools etc. - all in light of thinking globally by acting
locally, which may be especially important in these uncertain times. I
attended user group meetings about various topics 20+ years ago and
they were always very helpful. Is this a model of free software
activism that can be effective with online assistance now just a few
clicks away? Is the personal touch still relevant?

Anyone else please feel free to chime in!
