Ok, I just nominated @victoria-bondarchuk because she seems to give great talks and makes sure Open Source Design has a presence at FOSDEM: Call for Participation: Open Source Design Devroom at FOSDEM 2018

@pdurbin Philip, thank you for reminding that FSF gives an award and for making it more diverse. It’s very interesting to go through the list of the winners.

If nothing else I hope the nomination helps put design more on the FSF’s radar. :smile:
