Earlier this year, I agreed to join the board of Eben Moglen's FreedomBox Foundation, and to chair the recently announced Technical Advisory Committee.

To date, most of the time I've been able to personally invest in the foundation has gone towards work "behind the scenes", all of which was necessary, but little of which is worthy of external report or attention. I now believe it's time to take a more active role in communicating what we're actually trying to do, and how I think we can get there.

To that end, I intend to be more visible in discussions on the freedombox-discuss mailing list. I'm also accumulating a list of interesting technical challenges that I'll articulate here over time, along with status reports I believe are worthy of broad dissemination.
