Keynote: We Won. What’s Next? - Mark Hinkle, Director of Community, Citrix
How will the Linux and Open Source further technology for the next 20 years. 

It’s been over twenty years since Linux birth and it grown up to become the most successful collaborative endeavor of all time. Linus’ little project now cumulatively powers more servers, mobile phones and other embedded systems than any other operating system. Linux runs our economy and touches the lives of literally every single human being on the planet in one way, shape or form. Time Magazine named Linux Torvalds the 17th most influential man of the century 20th century. No longer do we have to defend the viability of Linux it’s been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. So where do we go from here? We’ll explore how the Linux and open source community can build upon their success for the betterment of technology and the world around them.

Keynote: Living in a Surveillance State - Mikko Hypponen, CRO, F-Secure
When Internet became commonplace in the mid-1990s, the decision makers ignored it. They didn't see it as important or in any way relevant to them. As a direct result, global freedom flourished in the unrestricted online world. Suddenly people all over the world had in their reach something truly and really global. And suddenly, people weren't just consuming content; they were creating content for others to see. But eventually politicians and leaders realized just how important internet is. And they realized how useful internet was for other purposes - especially for the purposes of doing surveillance on citizens. The two arguably most important inventions of our generation - the internet and the mobile phones - changed the world. However, they both turned out to be perfect tools for the surveillance state. And in a surveillance state, everybody is assumed guilty. What does this mean to us today? And is there anything we can do about it?
