Welcome to the Bulletin

by Matt Lee Contributions Published on Oct 17, 2011 02:34 PM
Welcome to the first FSF Bulletin of our 26th year. In this issue we have insights on some of the exciting developments in free software, as well as articles reminding us of potential threats to our freedom and autonomy.

We also have some changes at the Free Software Foundation. After ten years with the Foundation, our former executive director Peter Brown has decided to move on to new pastures -- handing over the reins to a familiar face, John Sullivan. John has held a number of positions in the Foundation, most recently serving as operations manager. He has returned to Boston after his brief dalliance with life on the West Coast. Josh Gay, who some of you may remember as a campaigns manager from a few years ago, has also returned to continue that work.

Finally, throughout this issue you will see various pieces of GNU artwork. These were recently rescued from our decaying archive and scanned. Our thanks go to Etienne Suvasa for all of his work over the years providing us with these glorious pieces of art.
