Born 18 July 1918, Mvezo in Umtatu (South Africa) / Died 5 December 2013, Johannesburg (South Africa)
Two reasons for this post.
1. In a small case that someone doesn’t already know
2. Because Mandela represents the same principles as Free Software. Freedom and equal chances.
After all, to write free software you have to be a free man.. So I guess he deserves a place in every FS blog, not as Nelson Mandela, but as a symbol.
