+Tim Bray explored the subject at #OSCON  2013 with his talk on Reducing Identity Pain - watch the video:

"Software freedom became personal when she realized her pacemaker/defibrillator was running code she couldn't analyze."

+Opensource.com is doing a series of interviews with #OSCON  speakers. They're all great, but this one's a doozy:
As part of Opensource.com ongoing interview series for OSCON 2014, held July 20 - 24 this year in Portland, Bryan Behrenshausen interviews upcoming speaker Karen Sandler of the Software Freedom Conservancy.

Come celebrate over 15 years of OSCON and open source success
Introduction

OSCON has supported the open source revolution all the way—from the early days when a handful of visionaries and rebels were working to make the case for free and open software (imagine wanting access to your source code!) to now, when open source software is the standard for everyday programming languages, databases, utilities, and operating systems.

And the revolution isn't over. Open source software has a rich history of stimulating creativity and the genesis of fresh ideas, and those who work with open source are dedicated to finding a better way to do things. At OSCON, you'll learn about the latest developments, add to your skills in hands-on tutorials, and discover how other people are using the tools you use.

OSCON 2014 will take place at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, OR July 20-24, 2014.
