+Fellow geeks who have attended [FOSDEM](http://www.fosdem.org) this year
+probably remember Eben Moglen's
+[announcement](http://www.youtube.com/fosdemtalks#p/u/16/-BSLBvwyUEs) about the
+creation of a foundation to support the development of
+[FreedomBox](http://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox)-es.
+
+The [FreedomBox foundation](http://www.freedomboxfoundation.org/) and its goals
+have been featured in a
+[New York Times article](http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/16/nyregion/16about.html?_r=1)
+appeared yesterday, together with a nice Debian mention which points to our
+wiki. Debian is also prominently present on the
+([[!debpkgsid ikiwiki]]-powered) website of the foundation.
+
+Yet another reason why I'm proud of being part of
+[Debian](http://www.debian.org).
