Here’s a complete and unedited version of my half-hour-or-so interview with hacker god Richard Stallman. [tweetmeme source=”jolieodell” only_single=false]
I owe it to you guys to let you hear all his words in context, in spite of the fact that I’m really embarrassed to have you hear me, as well. For one thing, I hate the sound of my own voice. For another, I was really nervous and I’m sure I said any number of stupid things.
Embarrassment be damned, here’s the whole interview — one of my favorite interview subjects of all time. Ralph Nader was a close second.😉
The video starts rolling shortly after I asked my first question and continues until we get up to hug and say goodbye.
If you want to see the interview edited into five subject-based snippets, check out the Stallman series I wrote for Mashable, and don’t miss this special non-Mash video where he just talks about being a hacker and his favorite hacks.
