Richard Stallman, founder of the Free Software Foundation and all around controversial guy, often gives speeches around the world on the subjects of free software and the evils of proprietary code and calling GNU/Linux Linux. Earlier today, RMS was forced to cancel an appearance to be rushed to the hospital.

Reports state that Stallman was admitted to the hospital, but has since been discharged. Reports from Spain say Stallman was most likely suffering from symptoms of high blood pressure. The short note on states that "he did not have a heart attack, as has been reported in some places."

Stallman had begun a talk at the Polytechnic University of Catalunya when he began to feel ill and suspended the conference. Paramedics were called, but no other information has been given by the the Free Software Foundation at this time.
