Jonas Öberg

Gnesta, Sweden

I'm a consultant on free and open projects, incoming director of the Free Software Foundation Europe and a Shuttleworth Foundation Fellow. My expertise lie in crossing the borders of the free and open * communities. Having worked with both free culture, open data, and free and open source software, I'm equally comfortable on all sides, and I see how interrelated they are. I'm good at managing projects, people and finances, to engage internationally, to educate, and to create & innovate.

According to Belbin, my best line of work is one in which I'm required to explore possibilities and engage with new opportunities. I should steer myself towards areas where change is highly valued, and my best opportunities may lie in conservative organisations that are ripe for change. I have an excellent ability at generating drive and dynamism to motivate others in a team.

But be vary, because according to my Motivational Map, I'm likely to be a difficult subordinate, continuously pushing to the limit and striving for freedom and autonomy!

When I need to avoid computers and technology, I'm renovating a 19th century house in northen Sweden, the location of which you can spot in the background.
