Society

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 28, 2003 06:30 PM
I think we all want to live in a society typified by sharing, openness and co-operation, rather than hording of secrets. Stallmans original motivation for writing free software was to encourage this type of society, and today that's still a major motivation for why I work on it.

Plus I get paid to do it sometimes<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:) Hopefully more in future.
