Bio

"Bradley M. Kuhn began his work in the Free, Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) Movement as a volunteer when, in 1992, he became an early adopter of the popular GNU/Linux operating system, and began contributing to various FLOSS projects. He worked during the 1990s as a system administrator and software development consultant for various companies, large and small. He also spent one year teaching Advanced Placement Computer Science at Walnut Hills High School in Cincinnati. In January 2000, he was hired by the Free Software Foundation, and he served as its Executive Director from March 2001 until March 2005, when he left FSF to join the founding team of the Software Freedom Law Center. Kuhn holds a summa cum laude B.S. in Computer Science from Loyola College in Maryland, and an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Cincinnati. His Master’s thesis (an excerpt from which won the Damien Conway Award for Best Technical Paper at this conference in 2000) discussed methods for dynamic interoperability of FLOSS languages. Kuhn is currently a Policy Analyst and the Technology Director at the SFLC, and the president of the Software Freedom Conservancy." (http://en.oreilly.com/oscon2009/public/schedule/detail/7865)
