Its the 25th Anniversary of the Free Software Movement and to celebrate this, the GNU project have got Stephen Fry to give a special video speech on freedom. Unfortunately we couldn't get the Free player embeded and working correctly, so ended up using a Flash version from Youtube instead.
Free software is a regular discussion point on the backstage list, with people taking many different positions. But there is a concern that sometimes we interchangeable use free and open without thinking about what they actually mean. We shall see if Stephen Fry's video changes this at all.
