“Jon”,”Phillips”,””,”Fabricating a Libre Graphics Future”,”In art school we used to say there are people who work on themselves and those who make art. While this reductive analysis can’t possibly explain the complete path for promoting and growing development and usage of libre graphics software and ideologies, this presentation examines the two paths of conservatism and progressivism through several examples. From desktop vs web development with Inkscape vs Aiki Framework, software vs hardware with flickernoise and the MilkyMist1, and fixed-income vs dynamic business growth, both defensive and offensive strategies for the future of Libre Graphics is shown.

Of course, the bias in this presentation is to grow the creative free software applications and libre graphics projects globally in the face of mass competition from locked-down creative web applications, the rapidly decreasing cost of consumer electronics for producing and consuming digital media, and possibly the largest threat to ourselves, the lactic acid of infinitely supporting legacy architectures of hardware, software and mental processes.
