Dear All,
I told about IIsc students requesting a session and CIsco requesting a
session.  I am not clear if its too late or not too late.  
However if possible we are willing work for the following: 
1) Organising a RMS talk clubbed with other events at - IISc or IIM . We
can take care of hosting , getting auditorium and so on..
Topic suggested "Myth of Intelectual Property or Why Patents are land
mines" or something on the lines- as many IP cells are being promoted in
these institutes of national importance and academicans are doing
patents and so on
2) Cisco : has requested a talk . Many technical leaders here will feel
honoured to hear RMS - becuase of the fact our life is entwined with
GDB,Emacs - but we dont discuss the philosophical political aspects -
which has made this possible.
Topic Suggested  "History of Free Software" - in a way which can expose
the techies to the philosophy . However this needs to be on a working
day . We will also try to rope in folks from IBM and so on..Please let
us know if there is a slot - if there is then I will work with
management and get this confirmed.
