WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Thursday 13 August 2009 – The linux.conf.au 2010 organising team is proud to announce the third Keynote Speaker for LCA2010

Our third Keynote Speaker is an anthropologist who examines ethics and online collaboration as well as the role of the law and new media technologies in extending and critiquing liberal values and sustaining new forms of political activism.

Between 2001-2003 she conducted ethnographic research on computer hackers primarily in San Francisco, the Netherlands, as well as those hackers who work on the largest free software project, Debian. She is currently authoring a book entitled "Coding Freedom: Hacker Pleasure and the Ethics of Free and Open Source Software".

We'd like to welcome Gabriella Coleman as our third confirmed Keynote Speaker for LCA2010!
