Richard Stallman and Hong Phuc Dang met at the 31c3 Chaos Communication Congress in Hamburg. Richard Matthew Stallman (RMS) is the founder of the GNU Project and the Free Software Foundation. Hong Phuc started the FOSSASIA community in 2009. The meeting during the “Congress” was a unique chance to discuss the progress of freedom and software in Asia.
“It is great to get Richard’s views on the development of software in Asia and learn about his ideas about Open Source and Free Software. I hope we will follow up soon about new projects and see more cooperation between the Free Software Foundation and the FOSSASIA community.”
A focus that is becoming more and more interesting is hardware and FashionTec development. One of the exciting projects taking place are knitting machines with a completely open design that are freely licensed. Richard advised to use the label “Free Hardware Design” modeled after “Free Software” for such projects.
