Mis-Managed Elections at OSI!

What the hell is going on with the pebbles left over after the implosion at OSI? First, they hold elections... then, they say there would be a revote today... then, there is no revote... Wow.

I'm telling you... you should see how they manage the licenses. I had one guy tell me he thought they would host and keep the license alive.

And on top of all that... RMS is back - Like a BOSS!

zdnet reported 2 OSI fauxpen source people seemed disappointed.

VM Brasseur stated she joined FSF because RMS was gone. Hold on... wasn't she the one perpetrating as a call for proposals "expert" for libreplanet, but wrote an article published by LinuxJournal - entitled "Do I Have to Use a Free/Open Source License?" She's appalled FSF restored Richard as a board member? I'm appalled she was injected into LibrePlanet and published an article the weekend of Libreplanet promoting open source ...

"To be clear here: there is nothing wrong with using a proprietary license for the software that keeps the lights on at your company (figuratively speaking)." - VM Brasseur

I contacted Molly and was not prepared for the events unraveling. Molly did nothing. She told me it was hard organizing a conference I didn't know all that goes into it. I responded with, I know actually as I was the event coordinator at Pearson and organized 2 large conferences there and the first million dollar conference at Microchip.

So, I went to RMS. He listened to me, my concerns, my information.

The next year, VM Brasseur was not at Libreplanet. I was. At the Friday party, Molly and Deb were in a room that made others seem unwelcome. I mingled with the crowd and had a great time...

During Libreplanet, I asked if we were calling it "intellectual property" now... and Deb "snickered" in disgust. It's on tape. I simply thought it odd a presenter was using this term as when I interned at FSF, we would NEVER...

Richard told me there was a community opening... I thought maybe this could be a good job. Apparently, Molly was leaving. I went to find out about the job and couldn't get the info -so I went to irc, where I witnessed ludicrous censoring behavior.

Later, I found out that job was like low 60,000s. I don't roll out of bed for less than 6 figs... I guess that's one difference between a community person and a dev... about 70k a year... at least. No wonder these "sjws" want to devalue devs and up their value... Seems like a good excuse to be bitter rather ... they could learn to code and be "better"!!!!!

That year, Deb Nicholson won a FSF award. A few months later she was holding a prop robot and speaking at the Linux Foundation embedded conference in San Diego. I was there. I didn't see her, but I had a robot I actually printed out and built... I can tell you all the parts, servos, wiring, and programming the arduino stories... I wonder if she even knew how many servos were in the robot she held for the PR photo... but I didn't get to ask.... I never saw her. Ask her sometime.

After they voted the sjws out of OSI... Ehmke LOST. 2020.

Then, they placed Deb at OSI as interim manger. Right after the story broke that MS was a SFC sponsor.

The individual election process seems so easy to manipulate. Anyone with eyes can see this. Of course, maybe Deb is the right manager for the job, right - maybe they need someone experienced with manipulation...

One thing I noticed is the circle of cronyism:

SFC (Outreachy)

FSF

GNOME

OSI

There's like this game of musical chairs.

Linux Foundation - who apparently didn't even want Karen... even changed their rules so she wasn't able to come in...
