NYC Camp Keynote: Richard Stallman
The Father of Software Freedom Is Speaking at NYC Camp 2015
Join us this year for an engaging talk from Richard Stallman, the father of Software Freedom and inventor of the GPL, who will be speaking on Free software, free hardware, and other things.
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 the Takeda Award for Social/Economic Betterment, as well as several doctorates honoris causa, and has been inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame.
