Congratulations to the 2012 Free Software Award Winners


Mike Gerwitz

Each year, the Free Software Foundation[0] presents awards to individuals who have made a strong contribution to free software:

The Award for the Advancement of Free Software is given annually to an individual who has made a great contribution to the progress and development of free software, through activities that accord with the spirit of free software.[1]
This year, announced at the LibrePlanet 2013 conference, the winner was Dr. Fernando Perez[1]—creator of IPython. The winner of the Award for Projects of Social Benefit was OpenMRS[2], which is a free (as in freedom) medical records system for developing countries.
