Blog Entry HTML Delhi (2005-01-31 to 2005-02-03)
by Richard Stallman published Feb 03, 2005 last modified Jul 12, 2010 05:04 PM
I arrived at Delhi at 3am on a flight that had been delayed by an hour and a half. I had expected to do a lot of work on the flight, but I was unexpectedly drowsy and nodded off for a few hours. When I arrived at the airport, the wait for passport control was only 20 minutes, and I spent part of the time explaining free software to another passenger who was curious about it. My bag was already in the carousel when I reached it, so I exited into the terminal and passed along the line of people holding up signs. None had my name on it. The person who was supposed to meet me was not there.

El Peligro de las Patentes de Software
by Matt Lee published Jul 26, 2007 last modified Sep 04, 2007 03:45 PM — filed under:
Location: Hotel Ramada Herradura, Autopista General Cañas, cruce San Antonio de Belén, frente a Mall Cariari, Heredia, Costa Rica. (Phone: + 50 6 2099 800) Richard Stallman will explain how software patents obstruct software development. Software patents are patents that cover software ideas. They restrict the development of software, so that every design decision brings a risk of getting sued. Patents in other fields restrict factories, but software patents restrict every computer user. Economic research shows that they even retard progress. This speech will be part of the Conferencia Latinoamericana de Informatica CLEI 2007 (comprising Conferencia Latinoamericana de Informatica CLEI 2007, XV Congreso Iberoamericano de Educacion Superio en Computacion CIESC 2007, Latin American Networking Conference LANC 2007, Taller Latinoamericano de Informatica para la Biodiversidad INBI 2007) which will take place from the 9th to the 12th of October.
