Everything Open would like to announce our third keynote speaker: Linux 
Australia's very own Hugh Blemings!

## About Hugh Blemings

Hugh has had a long standing association with Free and Open Source 
Software, Open Hardware and, in particular, Linux and POWER/PowerPC. His 
career has spanned everything from Linux kernel development to 
engineering team management, electronics design to technical program 
management at the likes of IBM, Canonical, OpenPOWER Foundation and AWS.

As a participant in the open technical commons, he has served in a 
voluntary capacity on the Council of Linux Australia in various roles 
including President, and is a former member of the Linux Foundation's 
Technical Advisory Board. As Executive Director of the OpenPOWER 
Foundation he guided the opening of the POWER Instruction Set 
Architecture (ISA), a move that ensured choice in the open high 
performance microprocessor space.

Of late Hugh returned to his professional passion - people management - 
as an Engineering Director leading Grafana Labs' APAC Databases team, a 
great bunch of folk working on some equally great software. Outside the 
FOSS/technical world Hugh is involved in various musical endeavours in 
and around his home in regional Victoria. This latter recently involved 
playing the role of a somewhat forgetful theatre cat...
