The Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, and invited RMS to speak as part of the activities, cultural events, shows, and festivities organized to mark the occasion. On May 29th, 2017, he gave his speech “A Free Digital Society”1 to an audience of about 850 people, in an auditorium and in an overflow room.
