Link: Free Software Foundation (FSF) Vision Survey

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is doing a survey until the end of January 2016:

Free Software Foundation (FSF) Vision Survey

And here's the blog post about the survey.

The FSF is also trying to raise $450,000 by January 31st, 2016. They're already most of the way there - as I write this, it says "370,295 so far" at the top of this page.

One of the goals of Non24.Org is to promote freedom in general, so, this is on topic.

I wish I knew of more free (as in freedom), libre, open source software which might help with sleep issues.

Here's a script I wrote back in 2012 in the Python programming language. This script at least works with Lucid Puppy Linux 5.2.8 version 004:

Apollia's Relative Scheduler

Someday, I probably should build something easier for non-technical people to try out and use.

Addition, Feb. 3, 2016, 6:31 AM EST. Here are my replies to the survey:

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4

Here's a link to a recent post from my personal blog at Astroblahhh.Com:

The Epidemic of Too Much Omega 6 and Not Enough Omega 3 in Our Diets

And here's a link to my post on Non24.Com about that post:

Time Sensitive

Blog Post by Apollia, owner and administrator of Non24.Com and Non24.Org

I recently posted this at the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum, where people can post ideas and comments, and vote on them:

Do our modern "traditional" sleep schedules defy nature?

Addition, 5/15/2015, 2:09 AM EDT: I also posted this:

Would unconditional basic income improve people's health & ease poverty better than conventional welfare programs?

Addition, 5/15/2015, 5:13 AM EDT: And this:

How common is Omega 3 nutritional deficiency, and how can people make sure they're getting enough Omega 3?

End of additions.

Votes and comments are welcome!

My post is on topic, because according to this FAQ page, the NHLBI (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute) is interested in sleep problems also.

Quoted from the FAQ page:

"3. Why is the Institute refreshing the Strategic Vision?

The NHLBI community has the power to build upon exciting new scientific discoveries and emerging technologies that offer great promise for the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) diseases."

There are also plenty of other ideas related to sleep and circadian stuff which you might like to comment or vote on:

Search: "sleep"

Search: "circadian"

And here's the idea which drew my attention to the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum:

Improve ineffective treatments for circadian rhythm disorders

Addition, 9:50 PM EDT: This also is a good one to vote for:

Elucidate the different causes of circadian disorders, and tailor the treatment to the cause

I'm sure there are plenty of others that are worth voting for, but, I can't possibly specifically point out all of them, because I have lots of things I need to get done.

End of addition.

I heard about the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum via the Niteowl mailing list.

The deadline for submissions, votes, and comments is very close - May 15th at 11:59 PM PT.

Sorry for taking so long to notice or post about the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum. I'm afraid I'm going to continue to be usually rather quiet and not at all consistent about posting interesting things, because I'm currently plagued with other things I need to get done.

Also, sorry that Non24.Com and Non24.Org are, for now, rather quiet and boring.

But, fortunately, the Niteowl mailing list and the Circadian Sleep Disorders Network are wonderful resources for people with sleep issues. I highly recommend them.

November 24th is N24 Awareness Day

Blog Post by Apollia, owner and administrator of Non24.Com and Non24.Org

I recently read that November 24th is N24 Awareness Day.

Here's a website about it, which I didn't create:

N24 Awareness Day

Quoted from that site's About N24 Awareness Day page:

"On N24 day, people with N24 are encouraged to write about living with N24 or create other forms of art and communication (videos, paintings, music, audio recordings, etc.) about the lived experience of N24. These can take the form of personal stories, scientific essays, awareness essays, poetry and other symbolic expressions and more."

Site Update

by Apollia, owner and administrator of Non24.Org and Non24.Com

Welcome to Non24.Org!

The reason I bought Non24.Org was because I was thinking of maybe starting a non-profit organization having to do with Non-24-Hour Sleep-Wake Disorder (which I believe I might have), and perhaps other circadian rhythm sleep disorders.

But, so far, I haven't started such an organization. Maybe I will get around to it someday, but probably not in the very near future.

Even though, according to Wikipedia, .org domains aren't reserved exclusively for non-profit organizations, I'm trying to avoid making Non24.Org commercial (aside from linking to Non24.Com), and advertising currently isn't allowed on Non24.Org.

Meanwhile, Non24.Com definitely isn't non-profit or non-commercial, since it allows commerce and advertising, as well as charity. However, I run Non24.Com with largely altruistic intentions, and hope that it helps both me and others, even financially.

For now, Non24.Org features little except links that might be of interest to people with Non-24-Hour Sleep-Wake Disorder and other circadian rhythm sleep disorders.

Hopefully someday I'll think of (or someone will suggest to me) some more interesting things to do with this website.
