Re: [ox-en] Video on Software for Development Online (Modified by Geert Lovink)

Nice video.  Stallman is great!  :-)

The contrast between the suits and the geeks was amazing.  Power to the people!

It was cut off at the end, though, so we didn't get to hear the end of
the UN representative or any of Mark Shuttleworth's comments.
