Neal Stephenson talks REAMDE with lawyers, security experts

Here's a video from a recent U Washington Law School panel discussion with Neal Stephenson regarding his video-game crime-thriller REAMDE. The law school assembled cyber lawyers, security experts from the computer science department, and Stephenson himself, and discussed the real-world implications for the sorts of business, technology, security and crime described in the (excellent) book. This video would probably work better as an MP3 — there's not much in the video track beyond a nearly static image of the panel — but the actual content is fascinating.

Update: Here's the MP3, courtesy of U Washington.
