Abstract
   Richard Stallman will speak about the Free Software Movement,
   which campaigns for freedom so that computer users can cooperate to
   control their own computing activities. The Free Software Movement
   developed the GNU operating system, often erroneously referred to as
   Linux, specifically to establish these freedoms.

Speaker's Bio
   Richard Stallman launched 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, as well as
to
   make changes either large or small. 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 honorary doctorates.
