#LibrePlanet 2019: Coming to Cambridge, MA
On March 23rd and 24th, 2019, the free software community will come together at the Stata Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ( #MIT ) to learn, exchange ideas, catch up with friends, and plan the future of the movement at the LibrePlanet 2019 conference. Registration is open, and we hope you’ll join us!
Hundreds of people from across the globe will converge on Cambridge, Massachusetts to explore this year's theme, "Trailblazing Free Software." With a new and growing generation of free #software enthusiasts, we can take this conference as an opportunity to discuss both the present and the future of the free software movement. Using the Four Freedoms as a litmus test for ethical computing, we ask, "How will free software continue to bring to life trailblazing, principled new technologies and new approaches to the world?"
LibrePlanet brings together software developers, activists, policy experts, and computer users to share accomplishments, learn new skills, and address challenges to software freedom. Newcomers are always welcome, and LibrePlanet 2019 will feature programming for all experience levels, including students (who can attend the conference gratis).
In addition to the keynote speakers we’ve already announced, LibrePlanet 2019 is scheduled to feature a panoply of presentations including:
- #Governing free software projects
- Redis Labs and the tragedy of the Commons Clause
- Right to Repair and the #DMCA
- #Security by and for free software
- The #Tor Project: State of the onion
