+# The GNU system has turned thirty years old on September 27, 2013
+In 1983, Richard Stallman launched the free software movement with the
+words, "Free Unix!" We've freed a lot more than that in the last
+thirty years. The GNU system is now a vast universe of fully free
+operating systems, window managers, andsoftware that serves almost
+every imaginable purpose. More than 95 percent of the world's
+supercomputers run free software. A majority of web servers run free
+software. Even more impressive, there are estimated to be tens of
+millions of free software users worldwide.
+That's a lot to celebrate. This weekend, the Free Software Foundation
+will be honoring thirty years of GNU with a [celebration and hackathon
+in Cambridge, MA]. Around the world, there are over [eighteen
+celebrations] planned on almost every inhabited continent. And
+online, people are showing their love for GNU by embedding the
+[special 30th anniversary badge] on their websites and [donating to
+support GNU's future work].
+**Please join us in the celebration**:
+ - [Watch the livestream from the Cambridge celebration] to see
+ John Sullivan speak at 10am EDT (14:00 UTC) and Richard Stallman
+ speak live at 5pm EDT (21:00 UTC) on Saturday, September 28.
+ - Find the [celebration] nearest you.
+ - Embed the [special 30th anniversary badge].
+ - [Donate] to keep GNU going strong for another thirty years.
