The free software movement, a campaign for computer users' freedom,
started in 1983.
Do you know of any other campaigns for computer users' freedom prior
to that? I don't mean the same specific issue (free vs proprietary
software), I mean any issue of freedom from unjust power, specifically
in regard to computer users or computer use.
The reason I'm asking is that the free software movement might have
been the first such campaign, but I can't sure yet.
