Most of the writing I do never appears under my name. Here’s some stuff for which I can claim at least partial credit.
- Unlock the Rock – a framework for saving internet radio from crushing copyright royalty rates.
- FOSS Primer – every FOSS project should read this.
I talk a lot. Sometimes people listen. I’ll note upcoming talks on the blog. Some of my past public talks are noted below.
- FreedomBox at Elevate in Austria, during October, 2011
- My 5-minute FreedomBox talk at ContactCon 2011
- I gave a speech at LinuxWorld San Francisco in 2007. It was titled “Why I Hate the GPL.”
- I’ve spoken at several JoomlaDays, in New York, Amsterdam and San Francisco, about why free culture and free software are important.
- In 2007, I told the Institute for the Future about some ideas that eventually became Unlock the Rock.
- I did a lunchtime talk at the Berkman on the overestimation of the importance of licenses in free culture, as well as raising questions about governance structures in the anarchy that is the free software movement.
- At GUADEC 2007, I made the case for GPLv3.
- I’ve visited some LUGS and given various spiels: NYLUG and Mid-Hudson Valley Linux Users Group come to mind. I’ll be visiting the Sheffield LUG in April.
- In early 2007, the Yale Information Society Project was kind enough to let me drop by and address students and faculty on the topic of why we needed GPLv3.
Halls of higher learning, as it were.
- Book Liberator
- Cravath, Swaine & Moore

- Society for Experimental Arts and Learning — I founded this org with a few friends. We accomplished some amazing feats of community-building, education and art, but the org was not sustainable and it folded after just a couple years.
