Gave a talk today at MIT's Media Lab

I gave a talk today at MIT's Media Lab. Around 27 people showed up. Since it's Spring Break, that wasn't too bad.

I called the talk "Net Control", and tried to get across that censorship, copyright, privacy, are all facets of the general problem of control of information. There's basically two possible positions, either information can be, or can't be, controlled. And no matter which one you pick, the implications are profound.

HTML-based slides are at , though it's nothing fancy.

Update: LISnews ran a story announcing it
