Aaarrrr! Pirate talk now available

You may or may not remember that I posted a couple of weeks ago about Rick Falkvinge of the Swedish Pirate party giving a talk at Stanford. For those who missed the talk, the video is now available as well as several other talks that Rick did while traveling to the Open Source Convention and the Bay area.

Many thanks to Stanford Libraries and the Center for Internet and Society for co-sponsoring the talk and for Henrik Bennetsen and Galen Davis of the Stanford Humanities Lab for videotaping the well-attended and interesting event!

Leave us comments and let us know what you think about Rick’s ideas for reforming international copyright.

James’ link dump of the day!

I have a bunch of tabs open of boingboing posts that I want to share, but it’s been such a hectic day (I invited Rick Falkvinge of the Swedish Pirate party to give a talk today at my library!) so I think I’ll just list them and let you all sort them out.

Now if THIS doesn’t convince you that a) blogs are incredibly useful tools for disseminating information and b) boingboing should be read several times a day as a matter of course then I don’t know what will convince you. Happy reading 🙂
