Follows Resume & Skills of Ciarán O Riordan <coriordan>.


I am committed to helping Free Software where it needs the most help.  I'd like this to mean that I spend my spare time programming but unfortunately Free Softwares currently needs advocates and people to defend it against legal threats, so that is what I am doing.  Not that I don't enjoy that work ;)

I give talks whenever I can get a platform, see my website for upcoming talks (URL at end).

Recently I've been assisting the coordination of the European campaign to prevent software becoming patentable.  This campaign has seen great success so far.

In January 2004, myself and others founded the Irish Free Software Organisation (IFSO)

Since April 2005 I've been Executive Director of End Software Patents (

I worked the Brussels representative for FSFE from 2005-2008.
