August 2017: Photos from FOSS4G, in Boston

by Jeanne Rasata Contributions Published on Aug 31, 2017 01:39 PM

On August 17th, RMS was at the International Conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial this month, in Boston, MA, to give his speech “Free software: Freedom, privacy, sovereignty”1 to an audience of about a thousand academics, businesspeople, government employees, and, mostly, developers.

Since the venue was within walking distance of 51 Franklin, where we are located, the FSF's Ian Kelling and Matt Lavallee were able to attend the speech and run the FSF table.
