Kuhn has a blog, is on pump.io and co-hosts the audcast, Free as in Freedom.

Lack of formal structure for Free, Libre and Open Source (FLOSS) projects limits their ability to function. FLOSS initiatives outnumber organizations that can host them. Our community needs a well-organized discussion of how we build organizations that can effectively foster communities that develop, document, create and advocate FLOSS. Let's consider what types of organizational homes we have, what jurisdictional, financial, structural and governance challenges they face, and how we can all work together to make them better.
