    what are you wearing?

    • justanothercynic says:

      Don’t worry, it’s completely original. His glasses, shirt and jacket are a completely ironic and intellectual choice to make.

      On another note, cool words bro. I hope that the movement against such restrictive measures gains more momentum over the next few years otherwise it is going to just get worse and worse.
      If closed tech bubbles such as the Apple bubble burst then we have a chance to take back rational freedom on the internet.

  4. David Carroll says:

    Great points as always Cory, but that is a very unfortunate thumbnail.  ;)

    • chrisspurgeon says:

      Nah, that thumbnail just happened to be when he was telling the audience “I intend to have my third eye installed right HERE.”

  5. justanothercynic says:

    Cory and Tom Watson (MP) should get together and make Britain a better place for Copyright and to be used as an example around the world. Or am I just being too idealistic :P

    Blimey Cory, that jacket – did you mug a deckchair?

  7. Blaze Curry says:

    Nice jacket.

  8. Chris Adams says:

    Interesting – what is the connection between being of Eastern European ancestry and getting all verklempt? Also, cool jacket. Where does one get one of those?

  9. Taz says:

    The jacket is a side-effect of living in England.  As a fellow transplanted Canadian with east European connections, I understand this and have been looking for something similar to add to my wardrobe. 

    Some day…

     Thanks very much for posting this.

  11. Doodled this while listening in the audience.  In the spirit of the lecture I obviously have to post it under a creative commons license :) Nice talk, thanks for sharing.

  12. Thanks for sharing this.  I was in the audience and doodled a little sketch while you spoke.  Thought it fitting in the spirit of a speech on copyright to share this under a creative commons license. :p http://goo.gl/TywQF

  13. Craig Kaplan says:

    I enjoyed the talk.  Thanks for coming to SIGGRAPH.

    Hate all y’all want, the jacket is fabulous.

    Cory: I work. MP3.

    … remember what Apple promised 1984?

    … and 1997 “Think DIfferent”:
    “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
    The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.Maybe they have to be crazy.How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

    Wow, took a whopping 6 minutes before you brought up Apple. I’m sure all the of the graphics researchers and digital artists were riveted. #TIRED.
