Richard Stallman - "Free software and your freedom" (Vienna, Austria)
Jun 07, 2019
from 05:00 PM to 07:30 PM
Most computers now contain at least some free software. This success makes it more important than ever to know about the ideas behind free software. Users should be aware of the freedoms it gives us and how to make use of it.
As opposed to secrecy and profit orientation, free access to and sharing of knowledge and ideas have the potential to change the world. Knowledge should be treated as a common good. This revolutionary idea was the base on which GNU/Linux and the free and collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia were built.
This speech by Richard Stallman will be nontechnical, admission is gratis, and the public is encouraged to attend.
Location: Hall: FS0.01, Fachhochschule FH Technikum Wien, Höchstädtplatz 6, KG Brigittenau, 1200 Wien, Österreich
