First Five with Richard Stallman


Richard Stallman founded the Free Software Movement in 1983 and began developing the GNU operating system (often referred to as "Linux") in 1984.  He describes his computing practices in his personal site.

What are the first five websites you visit every day? 

"None!  I very rarely look at a web site, and never from my own computer.  (This started as a personal penance, but nowadays seems possibly advisable for reasons of privacy)"

"I get the RSS to stay generally informed.  People scan the others for me to show me articles to cover in the political notes on  They scan other sites for me too."
