I'm doing my homework for our interview with RMS. Right now I'm in the
midst of reading these in order:

It is also a good idea for the journalist to read
http://www.gnu.org/gnu/the-gnu-project.html as well as
http://www.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-linux-faq.html
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/categories.html
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/compromise.html
http://RMSweb/articles/internet-sharing-license.en.html
http://RMSweb/articles/ebooks.pdf before the interview.  Those
articles provide important background.  This is especially important
for anyone who cannot come to my speech first.

It appears RMS would actually encourage us to make a recording of our
interview on Monday. Here's a quote from his "Rider for Public
Appearances."

"Please ask each journalist to agree to make a recording of the
interview. Written notes tend to simplify, and often lead to
incorrect quotes."

Does someone have a recording device that matches his specifications? Do a
search on the NB-Discuss thread for Richard Stallman and I think you'll
find the source I took this info from. He's very particular about the way
he wants his words recorded & dissseminated. I'm gaining respect for the
man, though. He's clearly one of those rare people who has very high
principles & lives by them without compromise, as much as possible.
