On Tuesday 30th August 2016 at 9am Pacific (see other time zone times here) I will be doing a Reddit AMA about my work in community strategy, management, developer relations, open source, music, and elsewhere.

For those unfamiliar with Reddit AMAs, it is essentially a way in which people can ask questions that someone will respond to. You simply add your questions (serious, or fun both welcome!) and I will respond to as many as I can.

It has been a while since my last AMA, so I am looking forward to this one.

Feel free to ask any questions you like, and this could include questions that relate to:

  • Community management, leadership, and best practice.
  • Working at Canonical, GitHub, XPRIZE, and elsewhere.
  • The open source industry, how it has changed, and what the future looks like.
  • The projects I have been involved in such as Ubuntu, GNOME, KDE, and others.
  • The driving forces behind people and groups, behavioral economics, etc.
  • My other things such as my music, conferences, writing etc.
  • Anything else – politics, movies, news, tech…ask away!

If you want to ask about something else though, go ahead! 🙂
