After 18 years with the Free Software Foundation, I've decided to resign my position as executive director, effective at the end of a transition period. We'll be sharing further details, including information about that transition, and a few more words, in the coming days. It's been a humbling honor to serve this institution, and to work alongside the FSF's staff, members, and volunteers over the years. The current staff deserve your full confidence and support -- they certainly have mine.

@johns @johns Thanks for all you have done for Free Software and the FSF. It's often been hard on you, but you've done it nonetheless, with humility and style. My memory goes to our first meeting in our respective "official capacities", back at DebConf10. Hats off to you my friend !


@zacchiro @johns Thanking him for what?

Covering up harassment complaints in the office for years?

Covering up death threats and sexual assault @ LibrePlanet directed to yours truly?

Firing employees for coming forward with their stories?

Or maybe its how he feels free to out transgender employees to the entire world on the front page of

Yeah you are right, we all have a lot to thank John for!!! Best ED EVER!
