Richard Stallman's blog

Blog Entry Bali (2004-10-24 to 2004-10-31) by Richard Stallman — last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:15 PM
It was horribly hot in Denpasar when I arrived, just as it had been in Java, Malaysia, and Singapore. But I expected it to be comfortable in Ubud, which is at a higher elevation. I arranged to stay in a really nice home-stay place, where I stayed the previous time, around 7 years ago. I was comfortable there without air conditioning on my previous visit.
Blog Entry Australia, Malaysia, Jakarta (2004-10-03 to 2004-10-22) by Richard Stallman — last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:11 PM
I was invited to Australia so as to speak at the Builder conference, which was canceled shortly before I got there (but they had already bought my tickets). This did not mean the visit was wasted, since I had arranged 9 other speeches. The Australian Senate had attached some conditions to the US-Australia Free Trade Agreement, and it looked like the US might reject the treaty as a result, which would give Australia a second chance to escape. I arranged to give several speeches about the danger of software patents.
Blog Entry Two Hours from Death? (2004-09-28 to 2004-10-02) by Richard Stallman — last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:08 PM
A week ago my plan was to give two speeches in Amsterdam on Wednesday Sep 29, then go to Paris on Sep 30. But in Geneva I learned that there was an e-Democracy conference in Paris on Sep 30 at which it would be useful for me to speak. Francis Muguet was organizing my participation, but it turned out on Tuesday that the only time I could speak was the morning.
Blog Entry HTML Luxemburg (2004-09-27 to 2004-09-28) by Richard Stallman — last modified Jul 12, 2010 02:58 PM
Yesterday I visited Luxemburg for the first time. Now I have been in all the countries of the European Union.
Blog Entry Norway (2004-09-14 to 2004-09-19) by Richard Stallman — 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 WIPO in Geneva (2004-09-10 to 2004-09-19) by Richard Stallman — last modified Jul 12, 2010 02:50 PM
This morning I arrived in Geneva for a meeting of consumer groups on how to deal with the problems caused by WIPO(an organization whose aim is to impose increased "intellectual property rights" on the public).
Blog Entry Visit to La Paz, Part II (2004-08-12 to 2004-08-17) by Richard Stallman — last modified Jul 12, 2010 02:39 PM
On my next-to-last day in La Paz, I went to see the ancient ruins of Tiwanaku, and Lake Titicaca. My hosts and I hired a taxi for the whole day--it was the only way to go. When we got to Tiwanaku, we took a little too long eating lunch, which forced us to hurry a bit visiting the ruins and the museum.
Blog Entry Visit to La Paz (2004-08-12 to 2004-08-17) by Richard Stallman — last modified Jul 12, 2010 02:35 PM
I am now visiting La Paz, Bolivia. The city is on the edge of the altiplano, starting on the plain at 13000 feet and running down through a connected series of valleys. The result is amazing beauty. Traveling between neighborhoods often means seeing marvelous vistas. The snow-capped mountain Illimani can also be seen from much of the city.
Blog Entry Digital economy bill: One clown giveth and the other clown taketh away by Richard Stallman — last modified Jun 29, 2010 12:05 PM
MPs are pushing for faster broadband in the digital economy bill – but also planning to restrict what the public can do with it
Blog Entry Who does that server really serve? by Richard Stallman — last modified Jun 29, 2010 12:05 PM
On the Internet, proprietary software isn't the only way to lose your freedom. Software as a Service is another way to let someone else have power over your computing.
