My candidacy in FSFE’s Fellowship Election 2015

Dear FSFE Fellow,

For those of you reading this post because you’re trying to decide who to vote for in the upcoming Fellowship Election (which starts 20 February), I’ve tried to provide a little bit of information about myself and my candidature.

About me

I’m FSFE’s Deputy Coordinator Netherlands. I’ve been a Fellow since 2008. You can read about some of the things I’ve done for FSFE last year in my blog post about FSFE Netherlands in 2014.

I also volunteer at (Dutch digital rights organisation) Bits of Freedom‘s Privacy Café (and other CryptoParties).

I’m currently studying Computer Science & Cyber Security at Radboud University in the Netherlands.

I’m interested in Privacy, Security, Free Software, Freedom and (Digital) Civil Rights; as well as Mathematics, Computer Science and Software Development. I also enjoy teaching and speaking.

My goals

I’m highly motivated to do more for the FSFE. I’d like to:

  • continue the Dutch team’s transborder activities with Fellows from Germany and Belgium;
  • be more active on team@;
  • and improve communication & cooperation with (Dutch) Fellows, other organisations & communities, and the general public.

Being a Fellowship representative would provide me with a great opportunity to do this (and more).

Who to vote for?

I think Max & Nicolas would be great Fellowship representatives as well and we seem to share many of the same goals.

So I’m not going to tell you why you should elect me instead of one of them — although I certainly hope you’ll vote for me.

Instead, I want to tell you that no matter who wins the election, I intend to work together with Max & Nicolas — and all of you — to make FSFE even better.

You’ve already found your way to my blog, but you can also follow me on twitter. And if you’d like to get in touch with me, feel free to send me an email.

See you @ FOSDEM!

– Felix
