Be Realistic. Demand the Impossible

[ Thanks to Nobody for this link.

“In the introduction to ‘Free Software, Free Society’,
a collection of Richard Stallman’s essays and lectures, published
by the GNU press, Lawrence Lessig, professor of law at Stanford
University, declares that “Every generation has its philosopher – a
writer or artist who captures the imagination of a time. Sometimes
these philosophers are recognized as such; often it takes
generations before the connection is made real. But recognized or
not, a time gets marked by the people who speak its ideals, whether
in the whisper of a poem, or the blast of a political movement. Our
generation has a philosopher. He is not an artist, or a
professional writer. He is a programmer.””
