9 9  I am active as a member of OSI's license review committee, and helping OSI handle some gnarly political issues that threaten Open Source. Here are [[my last three license reviews>>url:https://perens.com/reviews-of-european-space-agency-licenses/||rel="__blank"]], of licenses submitted by the European Space Agency. As you can see, it was a whole day's work to understand and comment upon these licenses.

11 -I continue keynote Open Source conferences worldwide. I don't charge to speak at non-profit conferences, but ask them to cover my expenses. 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 a lawyer.

13 13  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.
