Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y During the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, Richard M. Stallman of the Free Software Foundation (and the Superfluous Introduction Award goes to...) gave a keynote speech. Said keynote speech raised a few eyebrows in the Free software community because of a number of questionable remarks regarding women in technology. David "Lefty" Schlesinger, member of the GNOME Advisory Board and active in the mobile open source community, took issue with RMS' remarks and decided to call him out on it. The response he got was... Less than satisfying.

If you think RMS thinks of the world in black in white too much, you obviously haven't heard of ESR. He believes in things far crazier than RMS, like:
- The world climate problems are vastly overstated and are, in fact, irrelevant
- Trade unions = fascism
- Intelligence can be quantified
- Africans are biologically predisposed to be stupider than Caucasians

The open source world needs less crazies.
