Thank you for sharing!

It's really important to remind us of the moral dimension of software freedom and to link this to human freedom: Free Software is primarily for people and not to create freedom for companies.

I found two summaries of the talk. One by @doctorow at @boingboing

"How markets plundered Free Software's best stuff and used it to create freedom for companies, not people"

And one by @mako on his website:

@datenteiler i totally agree about the social dimension. we've got to keep that in perspective.

thanks for sharing those summaries!
