These are the five themes that we currently have planned, or are in the process of planning, for FSCONS 2010. If you have an idea for a new theme, or want to help out with organising one of the below themes (as a coordinator or volunteer), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Embedded Linux||The use of Linux and free software generally in embedded systems is increasing exponentially. In some ways, it's more common than not to use free software when developing new devices. Moving through the seven layers of the OSI model, this theme explores modern embedded systems, from the physical layer to the applications.||Henrik Sandklef|
Wikipedia defines infrastructure as "the basic physical and organizational structures needed for the operation of a society." The theme focuses on the infrastructure needs for tomorrows future society, as well as the basic need for privacy and secure communication, together with monitoring, both as a threat and as a tool to manage our ever increasing networks.
|Jeremiah C. Fosterh|
|Divide and Reconquer||
More and more people use centralised services for their daily tasks. To send each other messages they use centralised social networks. Most people only use a few providers for publishing videos and pictures. When we are searching for information there is a small amount of different search engine providers. In democratic societies power is divided and distributed. The topic of this track is why we need more decentralised Free Software services and which solutions already exist.
Free Software is a multi-faceted topic with at least a hundred different aspects. Coming from technology to policy, this theme will highlight technical and innovative applications licensed as Free Software, and move in the direction of Free Software in education and Free Software policies.
|Jonas Öberg (temp)|
|Making the Future||
RepRap is a "rapid prototyping system that is capable of producing its own parts and can therefore be replicated easily". The philosophy of the free software movement: being able to use, share and improve software, gets a real life counterpart in the Hackerspaces, Fablab, Makerbot, RepRap and Open Source Ecology communities. Turning every citizen into a creator is a central issue of this theme, which will explore both the underlying philosophy as well as the actual means of creation.
|Using Free Software to Fuel the Revolution||
|Extensions|| From knowledge and art to farming, economics and politics, the ideas of Free Software have inspired many to rethink and improve the common basics for society. This theme explores the plentiful and wonderful forks of the Free Software Philosophy, and their implications for human life.
How does new technology influence our moral values, and are recent developments in society on a par with contemporary values? During this theme, we will explore the multifaceted issue of contemporary ethics. Is it morally acceptable to share digital artifacts with your friends, and if it is, what does that say about the ethics of new regulations and laws seeking to criminalise or introduce harsher punishments for such actions? The theme will try to find an answer to these questions, as well as to pose the question of what is morally acceptable in todays society, and the influence of this.
