Experiences

Stallman is like an idiot savant. He's brilliant in a few ways, certainly passionate about his beliefs... but there are many aspects of what the rest of us would call normal human behavior that he does not understand, sees no value in and therefore refuses to even attempt. Emotion, empathy, pretty much any agenda outside of his myopic goals for free software. Listen to him on licensing, on Emacs (*shudder*) if you like... but if this article taught anyone anything, you should realize that his "experiences" on any "real life event" are going to disappoint you, and vaguely call to mind the Borg.
