Met Richard Stallman at NYU

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMet Richard Stallman at NYU. What would the world be like without free software? I am so grateful for the movement he started.

My whole career up to this point was based on free software.

Richard addressed the hackNY and NYC Technological Community during his talk.

On Saturday August 3 2013, Richard M. Stallman, author of the EMACS text editor, inventor of the GNU operating system on which Linux is based, and founder of the Free Software Foundation, will be inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame. Two days later, on Monday August 5 2013 he will be here in NYC to speak at an Internet Society New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) and hackNY sponsored event at the Courant Institute at NYU. Richard Stallman will address the NYC technological community, including hackNY’s summer fellows, on the importance of utilizing and creating free and open software solutions, and opposing restrictive intellectual property regimes.

The event is open to the public and attendees are encouraged to register via the ISOC-NY meetup link. It will be recorded for later webcast.
