Come on everybody on the committee. The opportunity to have Richard
Stallman at this time has come up at least TWICE now. You guys should
be falling over yourselves to make it happen.

Richard Stallman has already offered to come to Waikato University
during his August visit to NZ and do a talk, I talked to him in the 26th
of febuary this year in Stockholm Sweden about it.
I'd like to know if the arrangements where ever finalized? I posted this
offer from Richard on this list.
Does anyone know if Richard Stallman will actually talk in Hamilton?

I wonder if he's got time to come up here again?
Would someone in WLUG be able to get something arranged?

As per our conversation, Richard Stallman who is the founder of GNU
) and the GPL License, and is the authority on Free
Software and is a passionate speaker on such topics. He will be in
Wellington from the 13th until the 17th of August.
A brief bio of Richard Stallman:
Richard Stallman launched the development of the GNU operating system
) 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.
I know Nandor Tanczos had an interest about Linux and Free Software
and was interested in contacting him directly.
I will be organising his itinerary and main point of contact during
his visit to Wellington and was interested in if the Greens were
interested in a meeting / presentation or some media event with him.
Please either e-mail me back, or call me on 04 470 5540 or 0272 905
735 and we can talk further.
