Blog Entry Norway (2004-09-14 to 2004-09-19)
by Richard Stallman published Sep 19, 2004 last modified Jul 12, 2010 02:55 PM
I went to Norway to speak at a Java conference, and I was probably the only person in the room who did not know the Java language. (I expect to be in Java a month from now, and I've been studying Indonesian on and off for a couple of years, but I have never learned to read Java.)

Blog Entry Response to Fox News Article
by Richard Stallman published Jan 31, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:57 PM
Jim Prendergast's recent article mistakenly called me a "leader in the open source community". While I appreciate the praise that might be read into that expression, it is not the case: I do not advocate "open source" and never did. I founded the Free Software Movement in 1984. "Free", here refers to freedom, not price; specifically the freedom to redistribute and change the software you use. With free software, the users control the software; with non-free software, the developer has control of the software and its users.

My short trip this month began with speeches in Santander and Bilbao, Spain. Traveling to Santander gave me a chance to see the beautiful rock-surrounded beaches; we also had time for a brief trip to the mountains of Asturias to the west.

Stopping first at the National Taiwan University, Stallman gave a speech to 200 Computer Science students who had only been slightly exposed to free software. He then moved on to the Institute of Information Science, Academia Sinica in Taipei, participating in a panel discussion on "Copyright vs. Community in the Age of Computer Networks" for copyright researchers, their assistants, and legal scholars. The final speech of the trip took place at the National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHPC) in Xinzhu.
