Richard Stallman's blog
In May 2015, RMS traveled to and spoke at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale in Brest, France, and to Greece, where he spoke at Commons Fest in Athens, at the Natural History Museum of Crete, in Heraklion, and at the Technical University of Crete, in Chania.
"We must design free hardware. But the question remains: how?"
"To what extent do the ideas of free software extend to hardware? Is it a moral obligation to make our hardware designs free, just as it is to make our software free? Does maintaining our freedom require rejecting hardware made from nonfree designs?"
Are you in search of an easy way to explain to others what free software is and why it matters? Or are you perhaps wondering why you yourself should be concerned about computer-user freedom? If your answer is yes, then this TEDx talk by RMS is what you're looking for!
An imperfect free software program is not a program that denies its users their essential freedoms.
RMS was in the International Conference Hall of National Tsing Hua University's Learning Resources Center, in Hsinchu City, Taiwan, where several hundred people came to hear him deliver his speech "A Free Digital Society," on May 9th, 2014.
