Everyone's favorite sci-fi author and EFF Fellow kills the Summit crowd with his wryly precise take on proprietary software, DMCA, privacy, evolution, and piracy. Yar, matey.
This law professor from Columbia and legal counsel for the GPLv3 works hard to keep freedom safe. When he's not teaching law students, he's directing the Software Freedom Law Center, or educating the rest of us. Get your notebooks out. Class is in session.
Red Hat's Chairman, CEO, and President welcomes everyone to the Summit, and sets the stage with frank discussion about open document format, patent legislation, and the value of transparency and truth. Bonus footage includes info on Red Hat's newest projects: 108, Mugshot, and One Laptop per Child.

by David Lawrence
