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.

It greatly shows the healthy state of open source software where people openly criticize its leaders. When such is the case, we have a very open and democratic medium.

If we only had also an open and democratic organization to represent those ideals...

... like FSF.

Oh. Bummer.
