The other keynotes are @email@example.com, @firstname.lastname@example.org & @email@example.com! I'm *even more* humbled to be at the top of the program with those three! @firstname.lastname@example.org 2019 is going to be great!

"I feel we can’t continue to have a formal association with the FSF or the GNU project when its main voice in the world is saying things that hurt this aim."
The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.
Yeah, airlines are one of the worst but healthcare is my least favorite. Oh, you found a mistake on this 7 page bill? I hope you have 9 hours to make 17 phone calls to a bunch of different offices to clear it up... Or you can just pay the $350 you don't owe.
