Free Software, Free Society

I just spent the Queen's Birthday long weekend at our (extended) family's beach shack (circa 1920s). Three days with no interweb, *sob*, so I spent most of the time doing schoolwork...yawn. But in the downtime, I read two books: Antony Beevor's Downfall: Berlin 1945, which is an excellent history book: I can't wait to read his one on Stalingrad. The second was Richard M. Stallman's Free Software, Free Society, and I must say I have been tremendously reformed by reading this book, and I recommend everyone read it: right here, for free (PDF ~ 3mb). It's really changed my thinking about Free Software, and it will change your's too.
