Since October 2011 the SFI board has taken a few major decisions regarding its own future. Stability among board members should allow us to push our celebration and advocacy concepts to new heights, and in order to reach those goals we had to widen the scope of our possible actions by changing our bylaws and adding a DBA (doing-business-as) name to our official organization registration. While the bylaws'final wording is still under review SFI has decided to operate under the name of Digital Freedom International.
It is without a doubt that the Free Software movement has spread to new territories beyond the realm of software itself but intimately linked and equally important to Free Software. SFI, or from now on DFI, and the teams celebrating SFD have gradually taken note of this phenomenon over the previous years and need to adopt new strategies as both the audience and the subject matters are very spread in nature.
End of 2011 saw the SFI board validating an ambitious plan for 2012 and 2013 and this plan begins with our new (DBA) name: Digital Freedom International.
Let's wish us all the best in these new adventures!
The SFI/DFI board.
