GuerillaRadio writes"Cory Doctorow's keynote at 28C3 was about the upcoming war on general-purpose computing driven by increasingly futile regulation to appease big content. 'The last 20 years of Internet policy have been dominated by the copyright war, but the war turns out only to have been a skirmish. The coming century will be dominated by war against the general purpose computer, and the stakes are the freedom, fortune and privacy of the entire human race.'"If you don't have time for the entire 55-minute video, a transcript is available that you can probably finish more quickly.

It because of things like this that make Occupy Inside is so important.
