Eben holding forth

Linux.com has been running a series of video clips of an interview with Eben Moglen. I'm linking to just one of them as you can pick up the rest from the same spot. Check them out. Moglen speaks like, as someone said to me once, "Moses come down from the mountain". He clearly seems to think he has the gospel, and I'll say one thing, if preachers were as passionate and made as much sense as he did, I'd be religious by now. (OK, I'll stop with the religious comparisons, I know it makes folks nervous, what with FSF zealotry and all, what?). Anyway, Eben holds forth on all the fun stuff: hacking the Novell-MS deal, free software, meeting RMS, monopolies and common-based production.
