I think yesterday was a very good day for free software in blr. Multiple
events happening at different places. There was a total of two public
events by RMS with 2 book releases : FSFS book in kannada and the story
of the slum computing center book written by folks from the slum
community. I request somebody to write about their NLS experience which
I heard was very interesting and the Kannada Bloggers event...which
discussed the aspect of new media. There were two talks by Eben - one
with Kannada Bloggers with HP Nadig , Kannada Wikipedia and one at the
National Law school.
All this has a lot of long term oppurtunities for the movement.
However what I think is important is the value of the questions .
It was very interesting experience when RMS answered the questions of
folks from the slum computing center - AC3 - Ambedkar Computing Center .
He also released the book 'The Future is Ours'
RMS had a very clear understanding of dalit politics and Ambedkar in
our context. He explained how free software fits in this context. Will
post the questions and anwers separately.
