Presented by:

Matthias Kirschner

from Free Software Foundation Europe

Matthias Kirschner is President of Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). Matthias helps other organisations, companies, and public administrations to understand how they can benefit from Free Software — which gives everybody the rights to use, study, share, and improve software — and how those rights help to support freedom of speech, press, and privacy.

He serves on the advisory boards of different Free Software organisations, has been a consultant for public bodies and other committees, and regularly gives interviews, lectures, or participates in panel discussions about software freedom and the technical distribution of power in a democratic society.
