Richard M. Stallman in Ljubljana

On Saturday 21th of April, Richard M. Stallman, the founder of Free Software Foundation visited Slovenia and held an excellent lecture about “Copyright versus Community in the Age of Computer Networks” (videorecording here) at the Museum of Modern Art. I admire/respect the work that he has done over so many years in promoting and battling for the Free Software against the giant corporations, which try to limit the user rights and privacy. It was a great honour for me to be able to attend his lecture and speak a few words with him.


I have attended the RIPE 64 conference in Ljubljana, which was held at the Grand Hotel Union. The conference was really well organised, so all the best to the organisation team. Beside the very good lectures, they also organised the journey into Postojnska cave, which is one of the longest caves in the world (if you ever come to visit Slovenia, it’s a must see) and you can ride a train inside the cave for about 10 minutes. The fun part of the conference was a foosball (table football) tournament, which we played. It was nice getting to know the attendees and many thanks to Mr. McKay for making it possible for me to attend the conference with him and for his kind visit !
