Subject: [HackerspaceSG] Re: Meeting with Jonas Smedegaard - Representative from the Debian Community
If you want to meet up with Jonas Smedegaard, he'll be talking about Debian and Open Source on 18th November 7pm at HackerspaceSG. If you're not available, he'll also be at Mozilla WebFWD on the 17th November to meet with all the community guys in Singapore.
Jonas Smedegaard - A representative from the Debian Community, a Debian Developer himself
Jonas apart from being a Debian Developer is a freelance system administrator and networks developer, currently based in Denmark. Jonas has been associated with some of the important Free Software related projects of recent times:
- Sugar: The graphical user interface of the ambitious OLPC
(One Laptop Per Child) project. Sugar is a manifestation of Jonas' personal perception about learning - Learning by Doing, or the constructionism approach.
- Debian Pure Blends: A Debian project targeted at bringing in
- Debian derivatives closer to Debian itself - ideally integrated completely Debian.
: Another important project, driven by SFLC's Eben Moglen.
is a collaborative project of programmers around the world
who believe in Free Software, Free Society. Jonas is working on the FreedomBox
project, with a vision of making the internet, via the FreedomBox
, a non-invasive and privacy-respecting extension to our real
Jonas will be talking about the need for Debian Pure Blends and
an insight into what FreedomBox
could deliver and what its limitations

Will you guys be interested to meet up with Jonas Smedegaard? He's making his rounds in Asia (see http://wiki.jones.dk/DebianAsia2011) and he's currently in Vietnam. If you guys are interested to know more about Debian, I can get him to do a detour in Singapore on 17th November in the evening.
He loves to meet up with all the various hackers and startups and open source guys in Singapore.
