On Feb 6, 2012, Richard M Stallman a.k.a RMS, the father of Free Software visited Chennai and Gave a Talk on “Free Software” at IIT Madras.
The event was organized by Free Software Foundation TamilNadu [ http://fsftn.org ]
I was one of the volunteering team for organizing the event.
It was a real mega event with 3500 participants.
The hall was never filled before like this. The previous huge crowd was when Abdul Kalam addressed students. That too around 2000 participants.
Just wondering how RMS reaches the community with such huge audience.
Here are the newspaper coverages.
