Who or what has been your biggest F/LOSS or Free Culture influencer?
**Who or what has been your biggest F/LOSS or Free Culture influencer?**
Florian Cramer. Martin Rumori. Femke Snelting. In chronological order. At different times, in different ways.
What's your favourite piece of niche or off-the-beaten-track software?
JavE (Java Ascii Versatile Editor). Rather than for writing texts, it is intended for drawing texts.

Conversations. I think that conversations are the best, biggest thing that Free Software has to offer its user. (Ed.: Along with Femke Snelting and Xavier Klein, Christoph Haag developed a book on this subject, which is available from https://freeze.sh/_/2015/conversations/)

**Where do Libre Graphics/Libre Design fit into the larger F/LOSS ecosystem?**
Libre Graphics is interwoven with so many aspects and strata of the F/LOSS ecosystem. It interacts with standards and protocols (Unicode, css, html), with many different types of software, hardware (calibration), computer vision, web-technologies (html2print), collaboration platforms (etherpad, git), interface aesthetics, usability. It links to licensing politics and it questions inclusion and exclusion in F/LOSS. I think to engage in Libre Graphics means ultimately to redraw the boundaries between ‘end-user’ and ‘developer’.

Vectors of course. “We find that curves are simply more interesting than pixels. They are abstracted geometric shapes that flow from intentions. They have direction and the ability to express ideas. While they may be numerically complex, they relate intimately to the inherent discreteness of computation. They take full advantage of how computers can serve imagery. Curves have the ability to be close to movements, and open up non-binary conversations between digital and analog spaces. As shareable numerical objects, they are more open to collaboration and allow actual reinterpretation.” Pierre Huyghebaert, Colm O’Neill, Femke Snelting, “Pixels and lines” in Drawing Curved. Brussels: OSP, 2018. http://drawingcurved.osp.kitchen/
