WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Friday 4 September 2009 – The linux.conf.au 2010 Organisers are proud to announce the fourth Keynote Speaker for LCA2010!

Our fourth Keynote Speaker is a writer, journalist, and blogger. After receiving two degrees in maths, he started writing about computers in 1982, the Internet in 1994, and free software in 1995. In August 1997, his feature “The Greatest OS that (N)ever Was” appeared in Wired magazine. He is perhaps best known for his book "Rebel Code: Linux and the Open Source Revolution" published by Penguin in 2001, and "Digital Code of Life", a book about the genomic software that powers everything alive, and the battle to keep it free, in 2004.

We'd like to welcome Glyn Moody as our fourth confirmed Keynote Speaker for LCA2010!
