First and foremost I worked on planning LibrePlanet, the FSF’s annual conference and member’s meeting. Beyond that, I got to have a month that sounds very exciting. It was, in truth, quite exhausting but still a lot of fun! In spite of some setbacks (see below), things went well overall.
February activities (personal)
- I attended FOSDEM! I spoke in the Legal & Policy Issues devroom. I gave a talk titled “Now what? Following through on your community guidelines.” It’s 25-minutes long and features a lot of cats.
- I attended (and keynoted) Copyleft Conf.
- I submitted talks to !!con and All Things Open.
- I had two talk acceptances.
- I was rejected from…some conference. I forget which.
- I wrote a Twitter thread about speaking at conferences, which I recommend reading if you’re curious why I speak at some many conferences.
- I wrote about dating as a user freedom issue.
- Sixth and seventh instance of someone being mean to me on the internet. I only half count the sixth, since it made me laugh more than be upset.
- Debian applied as a mentor organization to GSoC and Outreachy — we were accepted to both and have projects available!
- I participated in the Open Source Initiative monthly board call.
- I began my campaign for re-election to the Open Source Initiative board of directors.
