OCTOBER 12, 6:00 P.M.
The New School
66 West 12th Street
New York, NY 10011
The event is free and open to the public.
The Free Software Movement campaigns to give the users of computing control over the software that carries out their digital activities. We developed the free operating system GNU, often referred to as "Linux", to give users this control.
Welcome by Trebor Scholz, Culture & Media (The New School)
The event is hosted by The New School and co-sponsored by LispNYC, The Graduate Center Digital Initiatives (City University of New York), and The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) at NYU.
About the Speaker
Dr. Richard Stallman launched the free software movement in 1983 and started the development of the GNU operating system (see www.gnu.org) in 1984. GNU is free software: everyone has the freedom to copy it and redistribute it, with or without changes. The GNU/Linux system, basically the GNU operating system with Linux added, is used on tens of millions of computers today. Stallman has received the ACM Grace Hopper Award, a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Pioneer Award, and the Takeda Award for Social/Economic Betterment, as well as several doctorates honoris causa, and has been inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame.
