He stole the show.

Eben Moglen’s talk at the 2006 Free Software Foundation Associate Membership meeting (play it now!) stole the show. I am glad I was there. I am glad there’s a high-quality recording available (of all of the talks) in a free format under a license that allows redistribution in any form so long as a simple verbatim license accompanies the work (“© 2006 Free Software Foundation — Verbatim copying and distribution of the entire speech recordings are permitted provided this notice is preserved.”).

My father and I went and we both agreed that Prof. Moglen stole the show. He was well worth the price of admission.

This is well worth listening to. I’m going to spend some time writing a transcript because I think this is worth close inspection and analysis.
