Blog Entry HTML Delhi (2005-01-31 to 2005-02-03)
by Richard Stallman published Feb 03, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 05:04 PM
I arrived at Delhi at 3am on a flight that had been delayed by an hour and a half. I had expected to do a lot of work on the flight, but I was unexpectedly drowsy and nodded off for a few hours. When I arrived at the airport, the wait for passport control was only 20 minutes, and I spent part of the time explaining free software to another passenger who was curious about it. My bag was already in the carousel when I reached it, so I exited into the terminal and passed along the line of people holding up signs. None had my name on it. The person who was supposed to meet me was not there.

Blog Entry HTML Impressions of Syria (2005-02-28 to 2005-03-03)
by Richard Stallman published Mar 03, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 05:08 PM
In late February, when I mentioned to people in Europe that I was soon going to Syria, they were worried for me. They thought that the tension resulting from the US decision to blame Syria for the assassination of Hariri would somehow make visiting Syria dangerous.

Blog Entry HTML Too Late for Bulgaria (2005-04-19 to 2005-04-22)
by Richard Stallman published Apr 22, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 05:11 PM
For an open audience of university students and the public interested in Free Software, Stallman attended a videoconference in Sofia, Bulgaria. In 1995, of all the countries in Europe, the one I would most have loved to visit was Bulgaria. Bulgarian folk dances were the most exciting, and I loved to do them. I loved the music as well, and learned to play many of the tunes on my recorder. It is no coincidence that I used a Bulgarian folk dance tune for the Free Software Song. If anyone had invited me to Bulgaria, I would have arranged to stay there for a few weeks, and found an opportunity to study dancing and listen to a lot of music. However, Bulgaria in the 90s had other priorities. No one ever invited me to go there andspeak.

Blog Entry HTML Bogotá (2005-10-19 to 2005-10-30)
by Richard Stallman published Oct 30, 2005 last modified Jul 13, 2010 10:44 AM
On Oct 19 I began the first trip in many years that wasn't primarily for the sake of my work. Tania asked me to go to Bogota to be with her in her thesis presentation. I was happy that my presence was important to her, so of course I said yes. After various schedule changes, we settled finally on Oct 19 to 28. That would give me a fair amount of time after her presentation, when she would be more relaxed.

Why The Firm, Simple Declaration Against ACTA
by Richard Stallman published Jun 16, 2010 last modified May 20, 2014 12:31 PM
UPDATE: ACTA is a proposed multinational enforcement treaty. It has not been ratified by any country besides Japan, and has been rejected by the European Union. Therefore, we no longer consider ACTA a threat. But there's a new threat out there, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

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.)

by Richard Stallman published Dec 16, 2004 last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:31 PM
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.
