Hi everyone,

As Joshua and Christopher have noted, nominations and election to 
Council for 2016 are now underway. The time is right to consider what 
sort of organisation Linux Australia wants to be, and what its 
priorities should be as we head towards 2020.

To this end, I've put together the below document to start a 
conversation - hopefully a fruitful one  - about what the community 
would like Linux Australia as an organisation to be working towards. It 
outlines our strategic environment and outlines a number of responses, 
then prioritises actions required to realise those responses. The 
Council has seen the document, and I'd like to thank Joshua Hesketh for 
taking the time to add comments and thoughts to get the conversation 

You may not agree with the analysis or actions outlined in the document 
- which is great - it means you have an opinion and can contribute to 
refining and shaping Linux Australia's strategy by sharing your 
thoughts, opinions and alternative viewpoints and recommended actions.

Everyone with the link is able to comment on the document.


My intention is that this document - 'Inflection Point' -  will spur a 
conversation and debate within the community. It will then be Council's 
decision whether they choose to accept and/or adopt the recommended 
actions in this document.

Please understand this is not a 'pitch' or similar for a nomination to 
Council - I'm undecided about whether to stand next year due to other 
life commitments in 2016.

As always, your feedback and comments are warmly welcomed.

Kind regards,
