Richard Stallman (rms) is giving a talk at the University of Houston. You can RSVP at the Free Software Foundation.
Richard Stallman’s speech will be nontechnical, admission is free of charge, and the public is encouraged to attend. The topics of free software, copyright vs community, and digital inclusion deal with ethical/political issues that concern all users of computers.
Title: “The Free Software Movement”.
Speaker: Richard Stallman
When: Sunday November 2nd, 2014 from 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM.
RSVP: Please register at Free Software Foundation (FSF). Registration is anonymous, but appreciated to help us accommodate the audience.
The Free Software Movement campaigns for computer users’ freedom to cooperate and control their own computing. The Free Software Movement developed the GNU operating system, typically used together with the kernel Linux, specifically to make these freedoms possible.
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.
Informational literature and small giveaway items will be available for the audience and there will be an opportunity to purchase various FSF merchandise.
The closest parking to the auditorium is Parking Lot 12B on Holman Street. A Google Maps is available here.
Pariveda Solutions came out and spoke about their company. Then Kevin Moormann of Pariveda gave a talk titled “The Power of Connected Data” that he previously presented at Houston Techfest. He demonstrated how to use Neo4j to make graph queries that would be difficult to do with a relational database. The meeting’s pizza was graciously provided by Pariveda Solutions! Thank you for both the talk and the food!
