Embedded Freedom


Paul Kocialkowski started using free software in 2008 and soon gained interest in software freedom as well as the use of fully free systems. After breaking his Openmoko FreeRunner he took at shot at Replicant, the fully free version of Android. He soon became involved in the project's active development and has remained its lead developer since 2012. Driven by a growing interest in the lower levels of digital technology, he evaluates various devices from the perspective of software freedom, in particular for the Free Software Foundation's website. Recently, he's been working on freeing digital devices at the lower levels, contributing to the U-Boot, Coreboot, Libreboot, Flashrom and Linux projects.
