To commemorate the occasion of GNU completing 30 years and SPACE 10 years, the free software community in Thiruvananthapuram is also organising an exhibition on free software and free knowledge on Education Freedom Day, which falls on January 18 at the Museum. The exhibition will focus on free software and free hardware for education and privacy protection. Various free software projects like Fedora, WoMoz, and HackerSpace will be part of the exhibition.
Dr. Richard Stallman, the Free Software Foundation’s founder, explains how GNU programs were developed and released in the early eighties
The interview with Stallman tries to focus on GNU as a movement and as a software project.
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. █
networkworld.com: The creator of the popular Linux distro talks candidly about his goals, his successes and his nightmares
opensource.com: I met with a special guest—Dries Buytaert, Belgian creator of the open source platform Drupal and general all-round entrepreneur, to get his views on open source, web publishing, web startups, and entrepreneurship.
everydaylinuxuser.com: A couple of weeks ago I approached Klaus Knopper (Founder of Knoppix) via email asking whether he would be interesting in answering a few questions about the Knoppix project.
mylinuxrig.com: Emmanuele’s interview is wonderful because he embodies the true spirit of open source software — he sees broken things and he fixes them. It sounds simple, but it’s people like Emmanuele that make Linux possible. His setup is GNOME-intensive, as you might expect from someone on the board of the GNOME Foundation.
