Student Senate, this time. Gavin Baker, of Florida’s Free Culture movement is running for Student Senate. I met Gavin at the recent Data Devolution conference. His platform, including open access publishing and a healthy debate about peer-to-peer technology on campus sounds good for Florida (home of the infamous ICARUS), and for a broader audience.
A world-class university deserves world-class technology. Technology affects virtually every aspect of students’ lives, but all too often, student needs are overlooked. As a senator, I will work to represent the concerns of all students.
If you’re at the University of Florida, consider voting for Gavin. If you’re a student elsewhere, consider running as or supporting your own Free Culture candidates. If you’re of national voting age, try to get state and national representatives thinking about technology issues too.
