Richard Stallman and Joey deVilla onstage with a plush gnu at the CUSEC 2009 conference

I love how he’s squeezing the grease out from his tangled hair. Epic.

This is how he autographs his items. I’m sure he did the same to his book.

Richard Blute: Right you are! Here’s a photograph of what he put in my book a couple of years ago:

Richard Stallman's autograph, which includes the phrase 'Happy Hacking!'.

Um, you didn’t actually shake his hand after that, did you?
