Free as in freedom : Richard Stallman's crusade for free software by Sam Williams( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why would Microsoft executives lie awake at night worrying about the antics of a long-haired, renegade hacker named Richard Stallman? Why do some of the smartest programmers on the planet revere this man as "St. Ignucius"? And how did a stubborn, precocious boy obsessed with creating the perfect model rocket grow up to play David to the software industry's Goliath?" "Free as in Freedom traces this eccentric genius's evolution from gifted, solitary child to teen outcast to revered and reviled crusader. Through extensive interviews with Stallman, his family, fellow hackers, and tech-industry heavyweights, author Sam Williams crafts a portrait of a freedom fighter who has, in fact, changed the world."--Jacket

7 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Arguing A.I., journalist Sam Williams charts both the history of artificial intelligence from its scientific and philosophical roots and the history of the A.I. debate. He examines how and why the tenor of the debate has changed over the last half-decade in particular, as scientists are struggling to take into account the latest breakthroughs in computer science, information technology, and human biology. For every voice predicting machines like 2001's HAL within the next twenty to thirty years, others have emerged with more pessimistic forecasts

La 4e de couverture indique :"Cette biographie autorisée de Richard Stallman éclaire sans complaisance la vie de ce personnage autant décrié qu'encensé qui a révolutionné l'histoire du logiciel en fondant le mouvement pour le logiciel libre. Amendée avec humour par Richard Stallman lui-même sans rien perdre de ses qualités critiques, elle retrace au travers d'anecdotes savoureuses la jeunesse d'un surdoué, les événements qui l'ont mené à la genèse de la licence GNU GPL, et sa lutte pour protéger l'ouvrage logiciel et en faire reconnaître le rang de patrimoine mondial."

Free as in freedom : Richard Stallman & the Free Software Foundation by Sam Williams( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. It also looks at how the latest twists and turns in the software marketplace have diminished Stallman's leadership role in some areas while augmenting it in others. Finally, Free as in Freedom examines both Stallman and the free software movement from historical viewpoint. Will future generations see Stallman as a genius or crackpot? The answer to that question depends partly on which side of the free software debate the reader currently stands and partly upon the reader's own outlook for the future. 100 years from now, when terms such as "computer," "operating system" and perhaps even "software" itself seem hopelessly quaint, will Richard Stallman's particular vision of freedom still resonate, or will it have taken its place alongside other utopian concepts on the 'ash-heap of history?'
