Oh boy! Richard stallman comming to my local school.
(Stockholm University - Sweden)
Dis gun be gud, what to question or expect this time?
Ask him about his opinion on the cloud.
Where everything is run on free software, yet still enslaves the users.
Or on phones.
Devices that has to use server(s) to do complicated tasks in order to save battery so you can stay connected with people.
I recognize this one, that he once said it in english end everybody was spannish or something
Like? "Din mamma luktar fisk" means I like you?
He hates the cloud, using another computer with propetary/unknown verifiable software
>Devices that has to use server(s)
Sounds like google services, heavy work on their side, which is bought with onces privacy
Well he will say use open hardware
Fpgas tho, depends on the hardware lockdown and hidden internet sendings - But ovet that fpga are custom cpu code so probably fine
Interrupt him about half way through his speech and ask him to start speaking in your native tongue, because you don't understand what he's saying.
Make sure you tell him it's no big deal, because the first half probably wasn't very important anyway.
I use the word "cloud" because it is the word a lot of people use when describing a server that does not depend on a physical hardware.
I would like to hear his thoughts on how to solve the issue. Moglen has spoken a lot about the freedombox and his view is that we must make it more convenient to use free software so people who values convenience over freedom can have both.
>server that does not depend on a physical hardware
that's not what the word "cloud" is used for.. and how are servers not based on physical hardware? VPS?
>server that does not depend on physical hardware.
You do realize that it does depend on physical hardware though, right?
I attended to one of his speeches when he came to Spain, boring as fuck if you ask me, the same old jokes as always from what I had seen on youtube, but in Spanish. Don't expect too much of it, drop by the first minutes and leave, that's what I should have done.
Real talk: why do Universities around the world invite RMS?
So he can talk about how the jews jew'd us with propietary software and free open source is the choice?
Not saying he's retarded or anything, just curious about the academic influence he has over the world
Ask him if his opinions on AMD has changed now that they're making all their future technologies free (although not under the GPL), and if he thinks it might only be a matter of time before they also will make their GPU firmware open-source, considering they're now throwing more manpower behind AMDGPU and Mesa
Stage a protest against a privileged white male being given a public forum over a transwoman of colour.
Most of their stuff is under the MIT license, yes.
Just wondering if he would still advise people against buying anything AMD because they disrespect your freedom. Compared to many other vendors, they're far more friendly.
Hell, there's even been talk about Zen may support Coreboot
Their answer to gameworks will also be released under the MIT license.
Yeah, when I'm upgrading to 14/16nm, I'll definitely go Polaris as well. So what if Pascal ends up performing better, supporting a company who values your freedom and develops technology which benefits everybody, is worth supporting
ask him if he likes cheese.
whatever he says yes ir no, proceed with the next question"how about footcheese"?
this was never funny
>taking it in the ass instead of fighting for freedom
go tell your prof to man the fuck up
well if both parties consent there's obviously no issue
