This is from LinuxCon 2010 from August 10-12, in Boston. Stormy Peters from the GNOME Foundation talks about the various non-free web services so many of us use and how that might be a bad thing. This seems to be a reoccurring theme lately eh? That's because there is something to it.
If your browser can't play Ogg Theora video, here's a download link:
For some reason the extension given is .ogg when .ogv would be better. Need a player? Try VLC.
It appears that the netbook shown in the video is a slightly newer build of the one I have (Acer Aspire One D150) and should fit in a number of 10.1" netbooks. Unfortunately I don't have $275 to spare to try this screen out myself. This is the first OLPC-type screen available as a mod.
You can order one from here if desired.
I think I'll wait until the Pixel Qi screen (or one like it) is standard in new netbooks. In this case I don't think it is too practical because, to the best of my knowledge, you can't get to the eReader mode (monochrome at a higher resolution) until you have a BIOS update that will allow the backlight to be completely turned off. Supposedly though, in color mode, they are still very readable in direct sunlight.
I really enjoyed this video so I'm sharing it.
I found this video fascinating (although the editing is a bit erratic) so I decided to share it. I personally do not see the personal desktop (hardware nor software) dying any time soon.
There is a lot of passion in the discussion and as a result some passionate words are used that some might find offensive... so be prepared.
What do you think?
David Eder brought this video to my attention last night at the BozemanLUG meeting. I believe I saw some blurb on Slashdot some time ago about this but I never made it to the video. I'm posting it here as to expose a few more to it. Enjoy:

Please note, my battery died with about 10 minutes to go so the last bit of the presentation is missing. Sorry!
