Eben Moglen is calling for a radically decentralized network structure for social networking —
one that cannot be spied upon or disrupted by the government or anyone else.

This was the keynote speech for a conference of open source software developers.


From the conference program:
Why Political Liberty Depends on Software Freedom More Than Ever

We have come a very long way since the beginning of free software. GNU, Android, Linux, Open Solaris, X, Apache, Perl & other free software have changed & are changing the world.

But events happening now, like the Wikileaks investigation, and technologies of spying and control, like Facebook and iPad, are reminding us just how politically and socially unfree computers can make us if we're not careful. In this talk, I consider where we are now, and where we need to go next.
