    6. that was general and put us in a "box" (bexelbie, 08:28:19)
    7. next mission lead advancement of free and open source software and content as a collaborative community (bexelbie, 08:28:21)
    8. this wasn't actionable, is hard and isn't really answered by a distro. So it was disconnected and asprirational and the world changed without us necessarily being the leaders of it (bexelbie, 08:28:55)
