Access to Freedom

Jul 21, 2021, 4:50 PM
40 Minute Presentation


Robert McQueen (Endless OS Foundation)


The GNOME Foundation exists to promote access to free personal computing software, particularly amongst those who have been typically left behind or underserved by traditional technology providers. This talk seeks to examine this mission, the reasons why personal computers are still key to personal autonomy and empowerment in the digital economy, why free software is still an essential part of that, both on an individual and a global scale, and what we should do about it as a community. What is GNOME currently doing to reach users and developers? What are we missing to make GNOME more sustainable and inclusive, and what can we do to expand our impact by scaling up both supply and demand of the software we build together?
