Dear Ruben Safir,

The tenth annual LibrePlanet free software conference is just two
months away, and we've got a slate of fantastic keynote speakers
for you!

This year at [LibrePlanet 2018][0], you can hear talks by
anthropologist and author Gabriella Coleman, free software policy
expert and community advocate Deb Nicholson, Electronic Frontier
Foundation (EFF) senior staff technologist Seth Schoen, and of
course, Free Software Foundation (FSF) founder and president
Richard Stallman.

[0]:https://libreplanet.org/2018/

LibrePlanet is an annual conference for people who care about
their digital freedoms, bringing together software developers,
policy experts, activists, and computer users to learn skills,
share accomplishments, and tackle challenges facing the free
software movement. The theme of this year's conference is
Freedom. Embedded. In a society reliant on embedded systems -- in
cars, digital watches, traffic lights, and even within our bodies
-- how do we defend computer user freedom, protect ourselves
against corporate and government surveillance, and move toward a
freer world? LibrePlanet 2018 will feature sessions for all ages
and experience levels.

Gabriella (Biella) Coleman is best known in the free software
community for her book *Coding Freedom: The Ethics and Aesthetics
of Hacking*. Trained as an anthropologist, Coleman holds the
Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy at [McGill
University][1]. Her scholarship explores the intersection of the
[cultures of hacking and politics][2], with a focus on the
sociopolitical implications of the free software movement and the
digital protest ensemble Anonymous, the latter in her book
*Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of
Anonymous*.

Deb Nicholson is a free software policy expert and a passionate
community advocate, notably contributing to [GNU MediaGoblin][3]
and [OpenHatch][4]. She is the community outreach director for
the [Open Invention Network][5], the world's largest patent
non-aggression community, which serves the kernel Linux, GNU,
Android, and other key free software projects. A perennial
speaker at LibrePlanet, this is Nicholson's first keynote at the
conference.

Seth David Schoen has worked at the [EFF][6] for over a decade,
creating the staff technologist position and helping other
technologists understand the civil liberties implications of
their work, helping EFF staff better understand technology
related to EFF's legal work, and helping the public understand
what products they use really do. Schoen last spoke at
LibrePlanet in 2015, when he introduced [Let's Encrypt][7], the
automated, free software-based certificate authority.

FSF president [Richard Stallman][8] will present the [Free
Software Awards][9], and discuss pressing threats and important
opportunities for software freedom. Dr. Richard Stallman launched
the free software movement in 1983 and started the development of
the GNU operating system (see www.gnu.org) in 1984. GNU is free
software: everyone has the freedom to copy it and redistribute
it, with or without changes. The GNU/Linux system, basically the
GNU operating system with Linux added, is used on tens of
millions of computers today. Stallman has received the ACM Grace
Hopper Award, a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, the Electronic
Frontier Foundation's Pioneer Award, and the the Takeda Award for
Social/Economic Betterment, as well as several doctorates honoris
causa, and has been inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame.

Dear Ruben Safir,

The tenth annual LibrePlanet free software conference is just two
months away, and we've got a slate of fantastic keynote speakers
for you!

This year at [LibrePlanet 2018][0], you can hear talks by
anthropologist and author Gabriella Coleman, free software policy
expert and community advocate Deb Nicholson, Electronic Frontier
Foundation (EFF) senior staff technologist Seth Schoen, and of
course, Free Software Foundation (FSF) founder and president
Richard Stallman.

[0]:https://libreplanet.org/2018/

LibrePlanet is an annual conference for people who care about
their digital freedoms, bringing together software developers,
policy experts, activists, and computer users to learn skills,
share accomplishments, and tackle challenges facing the free
software movement. The theme of this year's conference is
Freedom. Embedded. In a society reliant on embedded systems -- in
cars, digital watches, traffic lights, and even within our bodies
-- how do we defend computer user freedom, protect ourselves
against corporate and government surveillance, and move toward a
freer world? LibrePlanet 2018 will feature sessions for all ages
and experience levels.

Gabriella (Biella) Coleman is best known in the free software
community for her book *Coding Freedom: The Ethics and Aesthetics
of Hacking*. Trained as an anthropologist, Coleman holds the
Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy at [McGill
University][1]. Her scholarship explores the intersection of the
[cultures of hacking and politics][2], with a focus on the
sociopolitical implications of the free software movement and the
digital protest ensemble Anonymous, the latter in her book
*Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of
Anonymous*.

Deb Nicholson is a free software policy expert and a passionate
community advocate, notably contributing to [GNU MediaGoblin][3]
and [OpenHatch][4]. She is the community outreach director for
the [Open Invention Network][5], the world's largest patent
non-aggression community, which serves the kernel Linux, GNU,
Android, and other key free software projects. A perennial
speaker at LibrePlanet, this is Nicholson's first keynote at the
conference.

Seth David Schoen has worked at the [EFF][6] for over a decade,
creating the staff technologist position and helping other
technologists understand the civil liberties implications of
their work, helping EFF staff better understand technology
related to EFF's legal work, and helping the public understand
what products they use really do. Schoen last spoke at
LibrePlanet in 2015, when he introduced [Let's Encrypt][7], the
automated, free software-based certificate authority.

FSF president [Richard Stallman][8] will present the [Free
Software Awards][9], and discuss pressing threats and important
opportunities for software freedom. Dr. Richard Stallman launched
the free software movement in 1983 and started the development of
the GNU operating system (see www.gnu.org) in 1984. GNU is free
software: everyone has the freedom to copy it and redistribute
it, with or without changes. The GNU/Linux system, basically the
GNU operating system with Linux added, is used on tens of
millions of computers today. Stallman has received the ACM Grace
Hopper Award, a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, the Electronic
Frontier Foundation's Pioneer Award, and the the Takeda Award for
Social/Economic Betterment, as well as several doctorates honoris
causa, and has been inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame.
