Speaking ot OggCamp

I just agreed to give a main-track talk at OggCamp <https://oggcamp.org> in
Manchester, England on October 19 about TDF's two sustainability
initiatives.

*Title*: Making Free Productivity Software Sustainable

*Abstract*:  Productivity software like LibreOffice has long been sustained
by the commercial activities of community members as well as the
contributions of countless volunteers. That's also driven standards
engagement, like the work around Open Document Format (ODF). But the cloud
is slowly strangling the desktop support business, and spare-time
volunteers may not be enough for complex, mature software. The Document
Foundation has been innovating to sustain LibreOffice and ODF; this talk
will describe the COSM
<https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2019/07/02/the-cosm-project/> and
TDC projects, and ask whether similar approaches might sustain other open
source desktop software.
