CryptoPartyLDN Talk: Richard Stallman on Free Software, Freedom & Privacy

Big Brother Watch Team / February 20, 2018


The father of the free software movement, and President of the Free Software Foundation, Dr Richard Stallman spoke at CryptoParty London in February 2018 about preserving freedom today and in the future and today.

Stallman launched the free software movement in 1983 and started the development of the GNU operating system 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 numerous awards including the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Pioneer Award and has been inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame.
