Executive Director, GNOME Foundation

It was announced today that Karen Sandler was named new Executive Director of the GNOME Foundation. I don't know Karen, nor am I currently a stock holder of Karen Sandler or the GNOME foundation, but she is a co-host of the Free as in Freedom oggcast of which I'm a dedicated listener.

Given her years as general counsel at the Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC) and the usual legal experience appointing a lawyer to a board gives, Karen is also a good appointment for her non-law insights on free software development by building organizations that sustain and protect the free software ecosystem.
