Blog Entry Visit to Marrakech (2004-12-19 to 2004-12-20)
by Richard Stallman published Dec 20, 2004 last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:37 PM
I started writing this in the station in Rabat, after getting off the train from Marrakech. You could call it the Marrakech Express, or the Marrakech Local, because there's only one kind of train between Marrakech and Casablanca or Rabat. The trains are European, perhaps 30 years old--enough to seem less than new, but not enough to be quaint.

Blog Entry Australia, Malaysia, Jakarta (2004-10-03 to 2004-10-22)
by Richard Stallman published Oct 22, 2004 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 Bali (2004-10-24 to 2004-10-31)
by Richard Stallman published Oct 31, 2004 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.

by Richard Stallman published May 09, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 05:24 PM
A whirlwind trip around Spain in late April brought Stallman to places such as Granada, Ourense, Vigo, Galicia, La Coruna, Madrid, Castellon and Valencia. In La Coruna and in Castellon, he met with Computer Science students. Madrid's Fundacion Conocimiento Libre (Free Knowledge Foundation) named Stallman an "Honor's Patron" and invited him to give a speech there. He visited Spain coming directly from Sofia, Bulgaria, and he leaves immediately after for Bologna, Italy. After Granada I stopped for one day in Madrid, where I participated in a protest against software patents. There was a protest at everyuniversity in Spain, and I read that 15,000 people participated.

Blog Entry HTML Fireworks in Montreal (2005-07-01 to 2005-07-05)
by Richard Stallman published Jul 05, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 05:36 PM
For the beginning of July I went to Montreal. I had been invited for a conference on software and education, but it seems like too much of a rush to stay for just two days, and not efficient to make the trip for just one speech. So I arranged a second speech at the University of Quebec.
