-<a href="http://www.rattlesnake.com/";>Robert J. Chassell</a> was a
-founding Director and Treasurer of the <a
-href="http://www.fsf.org/";>Free Software Foundation</a>.  The FSF was
-founded to support the GNU Project which restarted the movement
-towards free software and open sources.  The GNU/Linux operating
-system and associated applications are the outcome of these efforts by
-the Foundation.  Chassell writes and edits.  He is the author of
-<cite>An Introduction to Programming in Emacs Lisp</cite>, co-author of
-the "Texinfo" manual, and an editor of more than a dozen other books.
-He graduated from Cambridge University, in England.  He flies his own
-airplane, enjoys astronomy, and has an abiding interest in social and
-economic history.
-Chassell is especially good at introducing the concepts of free
-software to audiences who have little or no previous experience with
-the technology. </p>
-Chassell can address the following topics:
-<li>He can explain how your legal rights to copy, study, modify, and
-redistribute software encourage people to work collaboratively and
-<li>He can describe the way freedom shapes the technology of software to
-make it accessible and empowering for both programmers and users.</li>
-<li>He can discuss the various business models used by companies to make
-    profits with free software, both in rich and poor countries.</li>
-<li>He can speak on the ethical implications of free and restricted
-    software, and how to arrange matters such that acting in a cooperative
-    and law abiding manner is without doubt the best action, for legal,
-    moral, and practical reasons.</li>
-<li>He can walk an audience of lawyers, and others who enjoy legal
-    discussion, through the GNU General Public License paragraph by
-    paragraph, and compare that license with other, somewhat different
-    licenses.</li>
-<li>From his own experience, he can describe the history of free software
-    from its beginning in the GNU Project through the rise of the
-    phrase <a href="/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html">"open
-    source"</a> to
-    the present flowering of GNU/Linux.</li>
-Chassell speaks English, and has experience speaking to crowds for whom
-English is a second language.
