The only questions worth asking today are whether humans are going to have any emotions tomorrow, and what the quality of life will be if the answer is no.

After Monday's demonstrations, Adobe has decided that it no longer wishes to see Dmitry Sklyarov in prison. However, since the charges against him are criminal, not civil, the feds are keeping Dmitry on ice for now.

Since the demonstrations were so effective at convincing Adobe that they were in the wrong, on MONDAY, JULY 30TH, there will be demonstrations in San Francisco, Minnesota, and Boston in an effort to get a simple message across to the Federal Government: Writing Software is Not a Crime.

Here are the details on the demonstrations:


San Francisco

Where: Civic Center plaza (the central square with all of the knobbly trees). If the plaza is busy, we'll gather on the steps of the SF Main Public Library.

When: MONDAY, JULY 30TH, 11:30AM.

What: "We march from there to the appropriate building, and make a lot of ruckus and hullabaloo."

Bring: A sign with a short, simple slogan to get the message across. Hats, sunscreen, and water are also recommended. Shouting is thirsty work.

Print: If you can print some flyers to hand out to folks, so much the better.


Boston

Where: Park Street, just south of Park Street Station (on the Red and Green lines).

When: MONDAY, JULY 30TH, HIGH NOON.

What: "We will be handing out flyers, waving posters, and generally making a ruckus."

Bring: A sign with a short, simple slogan to get the message across. Hats, sunscreen, and water are also recommended. Shouting is thirsty work.

Print: If you can print some flyers to hand out to folks, so much the better.

Minnesota

Where/When/What: MONDAY, JULY 30TH, details still being determined. Contact freedima@underwhelm.org for more info, or check the web page http://www.underwhelm.org/freedima/.

Bring: A sign with a short, simple slogan to get the message across.


Writing Software is Not a Crime. Free Dmitry Sklyarov!

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
