My name is Stormy Peters. You can

I currently work as the executive director of the GNOME
Foundation. I also am an advisor for HFOSS, OpenSource World, IntraHealth Open and OpenLogic, as well as founder and president of Kids on Computers, a nonprofit organization setting up computer labs in developing countries.
I do a lot of public speaking. For more information about the topics
I speak on, see my speaking resume. You can also see me speak at:
- Linux Collaboration Summit, speaking on the “State
of GNOME”, as well as participating on the community panel and running the open source marketing and GNOME mobile sessions
Conference on Open Source Software, keynote speaker: “Open source is changing the way work gets done”
- OSCON, “The Role of Users in Open Source Projects”
I am passionate about learning, books, technology and open source
software. I read a lot, travel a lot and I never pass up an opportunity to learn something new.
I have two boys – an eight year old and a two year old – who keep me
entertained. My boyfriend does lots of interesting things like cooking,
hunting, pickling and building stuff – you can find his blog at Life of
