Free Software Free Society

The Free Software Movement, started about a quarter of a century back, pioneered the various movements for freedom in the digital world – for instance, free knowledge represented by Wikipedia or freedom of creative works from copyright restrictions represented by Creative Commons. We also see a new form of social production where collaboration becomes more important than competition, where people from different parts of the world co-operate to create digital products including documents, music or software.

This is the program being held at Trivandrum from 9th to 11th of December. The co-creator of wikipedia Jimmy Wales is  participating in the program as a speaker. Richard M Stallman is also giving his talk.

A reputable news source would never describe Jimmy Wales as “creator” of Wikipedia. He was a “co-creator”, along with Larry Sanger. Only Jimmy Wales holds the firm belief that he alone created Wikipedia.
