What does Stormy do as Executive Director of GNOME?

Filed under
Software

I want to say I'm really glad I work for an organization where people feel comfortable asking "what do you do?" It shows they care about the organization and are not afraid to ask tough questions. Have you ever asked your boss what they did, exactly?

I have to admit that when I first got asked, that first day on the job at GUADEC, I wanted to go "I don't know!! What do you think I should be doing?"

Ok, so to the point, what do I do? I'm going to answer in three parts.

1. First, the things I think I should be doing, the things I was hired to do.
2. Second, a sampling of what I worked on in the past week.
3. Third, a whole list of things I think need to be done and I'd like to work on.

Since then, no actual proof has been presented to back up these claims by the Libreboot maintainer but the drama around it has seemingly continued. Waking up this morning, I received an email as part of a long email chain from Leah Rowe about how the "GNU project refuses to let go of libreboot" and she wrote, "GNU project has told me that they will not allow libreboot to leave GNU. This is quite possibly the biggest insult imaginable, considering what has happened." Read more
