SEVERAL TALKS FOR OSC 15 ARE REGISTERED IN MY NAME, BUT NOT DONE BY ME, APOLOGIES FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
Independant consultant, open-source enthousiast (openSUSE, Drupal, Kolab, etc). Also a big classical music lover (business manager of the Bachkoor Holland). One of my companies basic phylosophies is, if opensource provides you with a stable revenue (thank you, 10x), you should do something in return. Therefor, i am sponsoring this fantastic conference!
Brenno de Winter is a well known Dutch research journalist and a firm believer in open source/free software. He will talk about his personal experiences on the importance of being able to freely communicate in a world that has become increasingly non-free.
Since 1993 de Winter has developed software for commercial applications. Since 1995 he focuses on projects with open source software as a basis. From late nineties he gives lectures and trainings on this and advises organizations on their IT security.
Since 2000 de Winter has been a professional journalist. The articles written by him focus on the business side of the IT industry and the technical aspects of open source software and IT security. In his work as an investigative journalist, he makes frequent use of the WOB. This has in the past led to controversies.
