The modern web is slow, bloated, and intrusive. Our community (developers, system administrators, technical writers) must promote high code standards, support free software projects. For example, OpenBSD project—the invisible backbone of the Internet—software for routers, firewalls, mail, web, DNS servers, etc. Who else can save internet kittens?
Challenges? We need to (re-)educate few hundred thousand of web developers. I heard number of programmers doubles every five years. So half of us are inexperienced juniors. We'd better keep up. Everyone should become a tutor.

Why? I love to help BSD people to find their dream jobs. More people run BSD means more BSD projects receive better support. Good software wins!
Challenges? We need more companies to run BSD, to educate companies about BSD and its business values, make BSD systems compatible with existing infrastructure (hardware and software).
