Georg Greve

Using GNU/Linux since the early 90ies, Georg Greve is a physicist by studies and has been developing software for more than 20 years.

Becoming European speaker for the GNU Project in 1998 and writing about Free Software in the monthly column "Brave GNU World" his focus has shifted from writing software himself to the strategic and political issues surrounding digital societies. Together with likeminded people he initiated and founded the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) in 2001 and has been working as its president ever since.

His work involves supporting and protecting the Free Software community around the world, work with corporations that seek to make a living from Free Software, legal matters as well as politics, including the European Commission and the United Nations.
