Not much in English I am afraid.

You could Google "Candidacy for the board: Anne Østergaard" 


as I have kindly been invited to "Autour du Libre" in Brest.

Here is my biography:

Biography: Anne Østergaard

"Anne Østergaard holds a Law Degree from The University of Copenhagen.
After a decade in government service, international organizations, and
private enterprice she is presently an Libre Software entrepreneur,

In her spare time Anne Østergaard serves as Vice Chairman of the GNOME
Foundation Board of Directors and as Vice Chairman of Danish
IT-Political Association.

As a member of the Eurolinux Alliance (,
Anne Østergaard is working against the legalisation of software patents
in Europe.

Anne Østergaard is also working for free and open standards and file
formats, Libre Software in education (The MoLOS or Master Libre
Project), the health sector and FLOSS as development aide, privacy on
the Internet and more women in the ICT sector."

and my abstract:

Anne Østergaard 

"Autour du Libre 2006"


"The fast growing role of technology in higher education, in national,
and local government agencies, the health care sector, private
enterprise; society as a whole, calls for a deeper awareness of the
impact of Libre software - in areas of learning, creativity, and
innovation in our global knowledge based economy.

The presentation will mention the MoLOS project, some case stories, and
give a brief explanation on where we are in Europe today.

Libre software service suppliers are now asking for persons with the
right kind of FLOSS business understanding and specialised

Understanding Libre software will give a deeper understanding of
all software- which will result in candidates with competitive
collaboration- and flexibility skills."

I interested in teaching about the legal aspects of the Internet and ICT
like data protection, copyright, software patents, licenses, open
standards, e- commerce, business models etc. etc.  

Best wishes
