Resilience & Equity
I was introduced to Free Software in 1996. It's been an interesting ride since then. We've seen several phases of re-oranizing, redefining, and leveraging the core concepts of Free Software and Open Source Software (yes, those are two different things. Similar, but different). Code is written to solve a specific problem, and then it gets used to solve a very different problem. That's the beauty of the remix that comes from FOSS. Humanitarian FOSS is an interesting nexus.
