My panel with Tim Berners-Lee, Vint Cerf and Al Gore at Mexico City's Campus Party

Back in July, I went to Mexico City to moderate a panel at the Campus Party conference, a massive LAN party/campout/hackathon/tech policy event. It was a long, long way to go, but it was worth it: my panelists were Tim Berners-Lee (who invented the Web), Vint Cerf (one of the most important figures in the invention of the Internet) and Al Gore (who, despite sneering misquotations, *was* very, very important to the formation of the Internet as we know it today).

We had a wide-ranging discussion, but kept circling back to the threats and promises for the net -- copyright wars, privacy wars, government and grassroots. It was a lot of fun, and quite an honor, and I'm happy to see they've got the video online.

  1. Does anyone have link to a spanish translated video? I would like to show this to my parents, who only speak Spanish fluently. Speaking of which, how was the panel translated to the audience? I saw a sign language translator up there, but the spanish translation isn’t obvious.
