          PLUG Meeting will be different than normal

                       Richard Stallman
                        is speaking at
                  Portland State University

 go over to The Lucky Lab Northwest Beerhall at 1945 NW Quimby
 Portland, Oregon afterwards.


                    Richard Stallman Talk

                         Presented by
                  Portland State University
                          Chapter of
              Association of Computing Machinery

 The Free Software Movement campaigns for computer users' freedom 
 to cooperate and control their own computing. The Free Software 
 Movement developed the GNU operating system, typically used with 
 the Linux kernel, specifically to make these freedoms possible.

 The Portland State University Chapter of the Association for 
 Computing Machinery and the Computer Science Department are proud 
 to welcome Richard Stallman to PSU for this general-interest talk. 
 Mr. Stallman is the father of the free software movement and the 
 concept of 'copyleft', the original author of GNU Emacs, the GNU 
 Compiler Collection, and many of the utilities used in the GNU/Linux 
 operating system.

 This event is free and open to the general public. Mr. Stallman will 
 be available for a brief Q&A session following the talk.
