Free as in Freedom (in Plucker format)

"Free as in Freedom interweaves biographical snapshots of GNU project founder Richard Stallman with the political, social and economic history of the free software movement. It examines Stallman's unique personality and how that personality has been at turns a driving force and a drawback in terms of the movement's overall success.

Free as in Freedom examines one man's 20-year attempt to codify and communicate the ethics of 1970s era "hacking" culture in such a way that later generations might easily share and build upon the knowledge of their computing forebears. The book documents Stallman's personal evolution from teenage misfit to prescient adult hacker to political leader and examines how that evolution has shaped the free software movement. Like Alan Greenspan in the financial sector, Richard Stallman has assumed the role of tribal elder within the hacking community, a community that bills itself as anarchic and averse to central leadership or authority. How did this paradox come about? Free as in Freedom provides an answer."
...and now in Plucker format!

You can Free as in Freedom today in both high-resolution and low-resolution formats! (And don't forget to install those spiffy anti-alias fonts).

Nothing says irony/confusion like this...

Reading a book entitled "Free as in Freedom", on a closed-source OS, using an open-source tool. :P


Thanks for this though, I'll read it as I have time (probably in class, when I don't feel like actually working... ;/).
