Yes, LinuxSA

As a developer/contributor and/or admin of several free and opensource 
projects, I'm a member of a number of forums and 'lists that are dedicated to 
supporting the users of that software..  I also try to assist folks with more 
general questions in a variety of online-communities such as ubuntuforums and 
linuxquestions, as time allows.  Long story short: yes.

If you mean proprietory/closed, then no.. Happily, I left the bad ol' days of 
proprietory software behind years ago :)

There was only one event I had the opportunity to participate in this year - 
Software Freedom Day - but what a day it was!

Start a local LUG! On a national level, all I can do is keep my eye on this 
list and add my 2cents if/when I feel I have a valid point to raise.  
Hopefully others will continue to do the same.
