+abstract: Adopting free software ideals can be confusing and challenging for
++ individuals, filled with cognitive dissonance and questioning of
++ practicality. Am I a bad person if I use non-free software? What
++ example should I set as a free software activist or advocate? How does
++ that relate to responsibilities of developers and distributors?
++ This is a talk about practical ethics and ideals. It is personal,
++ drawing upon my experiences and evolution over the past fifteen
++ years. It contains some awkward discussions that free software
++ activists like to avoid, and hopes to guide those seeking to adopt
++ more free software ideals, but fear they may not be able to meet such
++ high standards. It's a talk about evolution and growth.
++ But complacency in the face of conflict can also dilute our
++ ideals. So this is also a talk about balancing ideals in the context
++ of one's own unique circumstances, while at the same time preserving a
++ strong message about software freedom.
