Richard Stallman - "Free Software: Freedom, Privacy, Sovereignty" (Boston, MA)
Aug 17, 2017
from 04:30 PM to 05:30 PM
The Free Software Movement campaigns for computer users' freedom to cooperate and control their own computing. The Free Software Movement developed the GNU operating system, typically used together with the kernel Linux, specifically to make these freedoms possible. Since proprietary software often sends reports on its users' activity, avoiding proprietary software is an essential part of recovering practical privacy. For state agencies, avoiding proprietary software is crucial for recovering the country's computational sovereignty.
Richard Stallman's speech will be nontechnical, admission is gratis, and the public is encouraged to attend.
