Video: Eben Moglen Fosdem 2011 Keynote #freeculture

Eben Moglen was a keynote speaker at FOSDEM 2011, a free and open software developer conference, in Brussels earlier in the month. He took the opportunity, a year to the day after after his ISOC-NY talk Freedom in the Cloud, to further elaborate on, advocate for, and call for contributions to, his ‘freedom box‘ concept – a distributeded personal webserver based social network. Regardless of the privacy concerns that drove the original idea recent events in the Middle East have served as an eye-opener as to the vulnerability of centralized systems.
