GNU, GPL, Open Source It's been a while since we caught up with Stallman. But a couple months ago we took a look around at what's happening with law, politics and technology and realized that he maybe perhaps his extremism and paranoia were warranted all along. So when we were contacted by an Iranian Linux publication and asked if we would like to publish an English translation of a recent interview they had done with Stallman, I thought that it was a particularly rich opportunity.

No link, first-hand experience traveling the country. The percentages may be off by a bit but you get the idea, most people are not the flag burning, quran-wielding nincompoops you see on the news.

Did you miss the bit where the military waded in after the Elections were rigged and people protested?

Or how an Iranian is going to be executed because somebody pirated his form code for a website and put it on a porn site.

While the people maybe find (and I believe there are many that are) ... the Government clearly isn't.

Sorry this is not a free and fair society.

how did you know that news are not One-side news?
do you live before in Iran or even had a travel to this country? in Iran the users have some limitation like expensive Internet... some filtering but i think you should not accept every news you may see in every media... Stallman has a extremist viewpoint of Iran i think.
