The speaker description is potentially outdated as it is from a previous FOSDEM edition.

An autodiadact with unconventional approaches to knowledge-management, Jonathan McHugh takes a hacker-centric approach to information-management. Given his ingrained need to see things in (overly?) complicated ways, it is indeed fortunate that he has a deep respect for minimalist programming as a means of understanding software and improving upon it.

Currently Jonathan is starting a research project (Icebreaker), using the nascient protocol, Gemini, in order to create knowledge-management applications for domains such as project-management; issue-tracking; and kanban-boards.

This project was made feasible due to a generous grant from NLNet:

More is coming from Icebreaker in 2022... stay tuned.
