Richard M. Stallman's (RMS) Sri Lanka visit

It was really a big moment in my life, the meeting with Richard M. Stallman (RMS) at the UCSC roof top.

With the launch of the GNU Project he started the free software movement, and in October 1985 set up the Free Software Foundation. Stallman pioneered the concept of copyleft and is the main author of several copyleft licenses including the GNU General Public License

There were several RMS events organized by the FOSS community and I could only participate at the UCSC.
