A quick, easy and dare I say fun? way to get involved and contribute to open source is swing on over to the VoxForge website and submit your voice to the project, whose free GPL speech corpora benefits up-and-coming speech recognition projects for Linux. This is a shortcoming of Linux that it does not have a good voice recognition/command and control software i.e. Dragon Dictate.

For some time the website has needed an update, probably to use some better type of CMS such as Drupal or XOOPS. Anyone interested should contact William Hale (Salt). Please have some experience in web design and/or a portfolio to show your work.

Art Project: Debian logo stickers / t-shirt
Lee Fisher is soliciting art for some Debian stickers he plans to have printed up for LFNW and other conferences:
I ran out of those 4" Debian swirl stickers, for LFNW/SeaGL/etc local swag, so I need some new swag for LFNW'16. I have no artistic skills, so need to defer to others with those skills. :-) Instead of replenishing the existing swirl stickers, I was thinking of getting something with "Debian Seattle" in it, to help grow local community. So, the art contest is to create a sticker for Debian Seattle, using 3 or fewer colors, in a round/square form factor, for a 2" sticker. Target file format should be SVG, not raster. Apparently some printers prefer Patone(sp?) color system-based colors to be specified. Try to How about a deadline of end of February? The stickers will be given out at LFNW, SeaGL, and related local events.
