I’ll be going to hear Richard Stallman at the Treasury Board library next Tuesday. He’ll be talking about collaborative initiatives and (undoubtedly) their associated licenses (GFL, Creative Commons, etc). The primary focus will likely be wikis, as the Treasury Board is behind the Government of Canada’s GCPedia project.
Afterward, he’ll be speaking on the steps of Parliament Hill, at the following event:
Richard Stallman on Parliament Hill, Ottawa, 16:30 Tuesday 2 June 2009
Topic: The State’s Freedom, and the People’s Freedom, as Users of Software.
Date: 2 June 2009
Time: 16:30 – 18:00 pm on Parliament Hill (main steps)
Followed by informal discussion at the “Parliament Pub” Family Restaurant across the street, beginning at approximately 18:00.
