7 7  I am one of the founders of the Open Source Initiative and was an initial board member 20 years ago. I was the creator of the //[[Open Source Definition>>url:https://opensource.org/osd]], //the rules for Open Source licensing which OSI still uses. I published my first Open Source program,// //the//[[ //Electric Fence//>>url:https://elinux.org/Electric_Fence||rel="__blank"]] //malloc debugger, to the USENET newsgroup comp.sources.sun from [[Pixar>>url:https://www.pixar.com/]] in the late 1980's. So, I've been participating in Open Source for about 30 years now - half my life, and it still takes up much of my life every day.

9 -I continue to tour the world promoting Open Source software, keynoting many conferences. At home, I'm working on Open Source for Space as president of [[Open Research Institute>>url:https://openresearch.institute/]], Inc. (ORI), a non-profit organization that facilitates worldwide collaboration in the development of space systems and other technology that - without careful handling - would be restricted as "munitions" under [[ITAR>>url:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Traffic_in_Arms_Regulations]] and [[EAR>>url:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Export_Administration_Regulations]]. ORI will apply to become an affiliate of OSI once we're certified as a 501(c)3 non-profit. To support my family, I run a small business, //Legal Engineering,// which helps law firms and their customers to understand Open Source and to resolve license compliance issues. I'm not an attorney.

11 11  I was the second [[Debian>>url:https://www.debian.org/]] project leader and successfully split the development of the "core" of Debian among many different developers worldwide instead of a single developer. At the time, nobody knew that you could do that and have the system actually //run //when it all came together. We succeeded in getting the Debian system on two Space Shuttle flights, and built not just Debian but the foundation of all of its derivatives today: Ubuntu, Mint, etc.
