Ever wished you could be a fly on the wall when tech-savvy folks gather? We got the chance at this summer's Knowledge Symposium in Delhi, India.

The official title of the conference was "Owning the future: Ideas and their role in the digital age." In between the discussions and sessions, we sat in on a conversation between Eben Moglen and Paul Jones. Two of the open source movement's big thinkers--the lawyer (and founder of the Software Freedom Law Center) and the curator of ibiblio.org (one of the Internet's largest public repositories).

Moglen and Jones have an open and fast-paced discussion that touches on international labor dynamics, technology expansion, intellectual property, economics, capitalism, and freedom. (Just imagine what they could do in more than 8 minutes...)

And, as a bonus, hear Moglen talking about the Playstation 3 processors and the fight to not own the IP.
