A Glimpse into The FSF Conference - CUSAT

Ah, the drama version alias the one-man-show! Organizers asked the
posters to be removed triggering the one-man-show exponentially. I came
across numerous mails/blogs/messages that a mob of 20 was protesting.
But this one big man was being recorded by the rest in their respective
hi-technology cell phones - and the man was happy and on fire. 20
minutes after this incident - pics & movies in various angles were
posted online - the very proof to the above fact. Before attempting any
intentional-publicity-claim, informing the media is a dirty trick played
so often by many such small 'organizations'. He knew it, the samurai,
and now we know it, watching his moves n movies in the videos recorded.
Allies arrived flying for rescue aid in 20 minutes after the show-off
started - now that makes me suspicious (just me or even you?). A 'press
conference' threat raised by this gentleman incase the poster is not
removed before the arrival of CM proves his/their intention to the core
line. The University Registrar made a polite request, but then he had
his own standards of replying dirty - and so he was asked to stepped off
(instead of being slapped off).

Glimpsing through the Conference Organizers let me put my view in this
regard. Free Software has to be FREE as the name says - no possessor in
terms of the giants in this arena, no patent and nobody enjoys
cumulative accounts. People who have been earning money couching idly in
their bedroom cushions are scared when CPM, who has a massive and
valiant history of struggle against capitalism and monopoly, is
promoting free software. CPM is supporting a fetus in this arena of
Software World and must be supported by all. If the people who messed
and the people who organized happen to be the same, I truly believe you
have affronted your own organization and give your heart and soul to
your cause next time and better keep things at your home within your

Criticizers... I do understand that growth and criticism seems to be
parallel but they meet only after realizing that the blogs and mails you
use for complimentary, to criticize but actually has to be colossally
appreciated, has the tinge and scent of the sweat, pain and blood of
these organizers.
