Outside of work I participate in a number of projects, some of these are listed below.
The Free Software Mirror Group

I’m also a member of a number of groups that I believe are important

The EFF work to ensure that rights and freedoms are enhanced and protected as our use of technology grows.
Software Freedom Conservancy
The Software Freedom Conservancy is deeply committed to supporting, promoting, developing, and defending free and open source software.
The SFC provides a home and infrastructure for FLOSS projects. This allows FLOSS developers to focus on what they do best — writing and improving FLOSS for the general public — while Conservancy takes care of the projects’ needs that do not relate directly to software development and documentation.
