Hi, I'm Saurabh. I'm working as an intern with the campaigns team during the spring semester.I worked with Mozilla when I was in college as a Campus Rep and as a Rep later. I'm also a member of Greenpeace and have done a little online activism with DemandProgress, SumOfUs, etc. Since college, I've been working as a professional web developer for the past two years, and I love my job.
Do you believe that control over our computers is important to a free society? Do you want to help people learn why proprietary software and Digital Restrictions Management are harmful? Do you want to fight for software freedom?
The Free Software Foundation is looking for a summer intern to work with the campaigns team to promote and defend free software.
I have added these lines in /etc/apt/apt.conf

Editor’s note: Heather Meeker is a shareholder and chair of the IP/IT Licensing and Transactions Group in the international law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP, and a leading authority on open-source software licensing.
Startups stand on the shoulders of giants, developing proprietary applications on top of a software landscape that heavily leverages open source components.
From the site:
Austrian sky diver Felix Baumgartner and the Red Bull Stratos team will attempt to break the human free-fall record. If successful, Baumgartner will break four world records: highest manned balloon flight, free fall from the highest altitude, supersonic speed in free fall and longest free-fall time.
The “free” in Free Software refers to “freedom”, rather than cost. It is largely a happy coincidence that Free Software is available gratis. Copyleft licensing certainly helps, but there’s no overarching reason that Free-as-in-Freedom software need not cost anything.
