Coming up this Wed. (hopefully), is my notes, thoughts, and reactions to Richard Stallmans speech on Copyright and Free Software at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, located in the United States. It was quite interesting. I have to sift though about 2 hours of audio before I make my post here about it. Sit tight I should have the entry up by Wed. of this week. I have to wait for the audio file from a friend, hopefully that gets here soon!
This monday, 3/23/09, Richard Stallman will be speaking at Lycoming College in Williamsport Pa! This is a great chance to meet the founder of the GNU project, where the Free and Open Source movement was started! Starting the Free Software movement in 1985, Stallman has since been an active and iconic figure in the Linux world. He is most known for his support of the GNU General Public Liscense, which many developers in the Linux community use to liscense their software. Also noted, is his creation of Emacs, the GNU Compiler Collection, and the GNU Debugger. In his current days , Stallman spends his time advocating Free Software, and speaking on its behalf.
