We built this for FOSDEM 2020 if memory serves (I never made it to this
last physical FOSDEM as I got ill). An exhibitor's table was set up
based around this name and leaflets were generated. This website was
created (with Roan's help I believe) and proved to be quite popular.

I think Ken set up the (static) site on an external service provider.
The plan was to keep it going as a resource for all of the Free Culture
podcasts we were aware of, and I wrote a SQLite database and Perl script
to manage it. There have been updates to the database since then I believe.

There has been a problem with the site since earlier this year according
to my records. I suspect its repair has been a victim of the pandemic
and life in general.

I daresay Ken will have some comments to add about this.

In short, this link is broken, and the plan is to move it somewhere else.
