The Linux Journal asks readers to nominate free software advocate Richard M. Stallman. "Only six working days (fewer days now) remain until the deadline arrives to submit nominations for the US Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Public Advisory
Committee. If you or someone you know has some helpful advice for USPTO and is a US citizen willing to serve, please submit a nomination. A letter
and the person's resume is all you need to send. It doesn't take long, and you can do it by e-mail.
Richard M. Stallman, inventor of notable software innovations including the Emacs editor and the software distribution model 'copyleft', is our choice
for the committee."
