“I’m just a student, so I don’t have a lot of money to blow, but I donated $165 to EFF, Public Knowledge, and Creative Commons.”
So writes Michael-Forest Meservy in an email, inspiring the following plea:
I’m extremely honored to serve on the board of five extraordinary organizations: Creative Commons, EFF, Public Knowledge, Public Library of Science, and the Free Software Foundation. If you can follow a student’s lead, I’d be grateful. These are five amazing organizations that need your support. Ask yourself this: How much did I give to the monopolists this year? We’d be happy with 1/10th of that.
