Alyssa Rosenzweig at LibrePlanet 2024。

Alyssa Rosenzweig'skeynote concluded the conference,sharingher trailblazing work with freeing the M1series of Apple GPUs。Rosenzweig did this through first giving an introduction to thedramatis personae of the graphical toolkit world,like Direct 3D,whichshe“begrudgingly”described asa standard when compared to Apple'scompletely undocumented Metal API.From there,Rosenzweig tookusthrough how she became involved in reverse-engineering graphics stacksby sharing how she freed her first machine,and her first computer,aChromebook equipped with a Mali GPU.This highlighted the dominoeffect her exemplary work on free software had,beginning with“Alyssagetting a Chromebook“leading straight up to the multi-billion dollarARM corporation contributing to the project.Rosenzweig characterizedher talk(and work)not as being about graphics or even free software,but resisting the daily injustices perpetrated by the“big corporate”monolith.“I want you to find a cause,I want you to build a community,和我一起,“she said.Rosenzweig concluded to a fullstanding ovation from the audience。

Rosenzweig emphasized the collective impact that our individualactions have,stating that individuals have something corporations donot:dignity.We couldn't have asked for a more appropriate capstonefor the conference generally.The free software movement continues day对日,not just two days out of the year,and we hope thatLibrePlanet has provided the encouragement both old and new freesoftware activists need to continue their work。
