My keynote from the O'Reilly Security Conference: "Security and feudalism: Own or be pwned"

Here's the 32 minute video of my presentation at last month's O'Reilly Security Conference in New York, "Security and feudalism: Own or be pwned."

Cory Doctorow explains how EFF is battling the perfect storm of bad security, abusive business practices, and threats to the very nature of property itself, fighting for a future where our devices can be configured to do our bidding and where security researchers are always free to tell us what they've learned.

  1. Excellent talk, Cory. Illuminating and alarming - as i have only a dim sense of DRM/DMCA and it's implications. Less dim now. I particularly like that you suggest "hope" as a better response than optimism/pessimism. Very well said.

  2. @doctorow from your HOPE talk to this, I am SO FUCKING HAPPY that you made more time for EFF activism.

    You're a lighthouse in the looming dark.
