If members haven't yet heard Richard give one of his presentation, they
should go attend if they possibly can.  Worth the trip.

For A Free Digital Society

   Activities directed at ``including'' more people in the use of digital
   technology are predicated on the assumption that such inclusion is
   invariably a good thing.  It appears so, when judged solely by
   immediate practical convenience.  However, if we also judge in terms
   of human rights, whether digital inclusion is good or bad depends on
   what kind of digital world we are to be included in.  If we wish to
   work towards digital inclusion as a goal, it behooves us to make sure
   it is the good kind.

   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 the Takeda Award for Social/Economic
   Betterment, as well as several honorary doctorates.
