The Shuttleworth Foundation has recognized Robert Steele as “a voice not heard with potential for becoming an impressive change agent.”
The Foundation, established by Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu, is at its core an experiment in open philanthropy. Our ideal future is one where it is much easier to find solutions to social challenges in a global open knowledge society with unhindered access to essential information and limitless opportunities for innovation and replication.
ROBERT STEELE: I feel blessed to be recognized by The Shuttleworth Foundation. During the coming year I will be working toward the creation of an Open Source Everything Engineering conference and network, and trying to find one billionaire who can get Vice President Joe Biden to read the Decision Memorandum I sent him — a document I suspect was not actually placed before the Vice President.
