LWN editor Nathan Willis is giving a keynote talk at the upcoming GUADEC (GNOME Users and Developers European Conference) and was interviewed by GNOME News. Willis's talk is titled "Should We Teach The Robot To Kill" and will look at free software and the automotive industry. "And, finally, my ultimate goal would be to persuade some people that the free-software community can — and should — take up the challenge and view the car as a first-rate environment where free software belongs. Because there will naturally be lots of little gaps where the different corporate projects don’t quite have every angle covered. But we don’t have to wait for other giant companies to come along and finish the job. We can get involved now, and if we do, then the next generation of automotive software will be stronger for it, both in terms of features and in terms of free-software ideals." GUADEC is being held in Strasbourg, France July 26–August 1.
