This has already been announced elsewhere, but Ron Peterson points us to a new press release at GNU.org: "The Takeda Foundation of
Japan has named Richard M. Stallman, president of the Free Software
Foundation and founder of the GNU project, as co-recipient of the 2001
Takeda Award. As part of this honor, Stallman will receive a monetary
award of approximately 33 million yen (currently about US$268,000)."
