Interviewing Richard Stallman: Freedom in the time of SaaS

Richard Stallman is one of the most revolutionary thinkers and activists of the twentieth century. Thanks to him we have things like GNU and free software movement. Meedabyte had the opportunity to publish an interview with him about the threats to personal freedom deriving from using what is commonly identified as SaaS.

All of us use SaaS every day but the contours of this phenomenon, which has so many obscure points for users, are rarely clear.
