I respect that tool choices can make a difference in enabling or
improving our outreach to specific cultures. I'll commit to
personally rejecting presence on proprietary social media services
so as to demonstrate that public work can be done within our
community while relying exclusively on free/libre open source
software. I recognize the existence of the free software movement as
a distinct culture with whom we could do a better job of connecting.
If as a community we promote and embrace non-free tools we will only
continue to alienate them, so I'm happy to serve as an example that
it is possible to be an engaged and effective contributor to our
community without compromising those ideals.
