Good one, Bianca.

Tim is a person strongly in alignment with software freedom. Not only
did he release the World Wide Web itself as free software (by dedicating
it to the public domain, as is healthy for scientific research), he
continues to be a vocal advocate of abolishing software idea patents and
preserving the freedom of people on the internet.

It's not clear from <URL:http://tbldownunder.org/> what his public
lecture will be about in particular. But this is certainly someone of
special interest to members of Free Software Melbourne.
