Interviews

Summary: Readers are invited to ask questions which Richard Stallman can answer tomorrow (on camera)

LAST Friday I very briefly attended Drupal Camp 2013 (the event was in Manchester) and tomorrow (Friday) I will travel to meet Richard Stallman in Lincoln. I plan to do some filming. If you have questions to Stallman or just subjects which you would like him to address, please get in touch by tomorrow morning. I am trying to get an extensive record of his views on many issues, not necessarily just software. I typically ask questions which people around the Web relay to me, so assume that your polite questions will be asked and answered.

Interviews

mylinuxrig.com: Dmitry interviewed me a few weeks ago and I thought it would be fun to repay the favor. By far the most interesting aspect of this setup is the fact that Dmitry chooses his distro by his mood at a given moment. Given that he’s running three different desktop environments on three different distros, that’s a pretty neat feat of mental gymnastics.
