Blog Entry D source code "FRAND" is a FRAUD
by Richard Stallman published Apr 25, 2012 last modified Apr 26, 2012 05:02 PM
The UK government is holding a consultation about what sort of patent licenses an "open" standard should require. Anyone that develops free software (free as in freedom, not a matter of price) and would like it to be used in the UK has reason to be concerned with this, along with anyone that uses or distributes free software in the UK.

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.

Blog Entry Blizzard (2004-12-26)
by Richard Stallman published Dec 26, 2004 last modified Jul 12, 2010 03:47 PM
On Dec 26 I went home to Boston from Spain. About 40 minutes before arrival time, my laptop display died completely. It had previously shown a tendency to turn off occasionally, but suspending and unsuspending had fixed it before. This time no; not even shutting down the machine and removing the batteries made the screen function. I began to wonder how I could get any further work done until I obtained a new machine. Would connecting it to an external monitor produce a useful display?

Blog Entry HTML Bogotá (2005-10-19 to 2005-10-30)
by Richard Stallman published Oct 30, 2005 last modified Jul 13, 2010 10:44 AM
On Oct 19 I began the first trip in many years that wasn't primarily for the sake of my work. Tania asked me to go to Bogota to be with her in her thesis presentation. I was happy that my presence was important to her, so of course I said yes. After various schedule changes, we settled finally on Oct 19 to 28. That would give me a fair amount of time after her presentation, when she would be more relaxed.

Blog Entry Bolivia (2005-01-19 to 2005-01-27)
by Richard Stallman published Jan 27, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 04:11 PM
Visiting Bolivia provided an opportunity for me to spend a week with Tania. I had better explain that Tania isn't just my friend; she's my sweetheart. Since she lives in Colombia, it isn't easy for us to spend time together. I used frequent flier miles to get her a ticket to Bolivia while I was to be there. In arranging this trip, I agreed to go speak in Santa Cruz provided either I went there for a very short time or Tania could go with me. The day before going to Bolivia was when I learned that the trip to Santa Cruz had been arranged for both of us together.
