This weekend has been odd: imagine a mix of sushi and pastis and billiards and flowering thyme & bay and bubbling streams and woodchippers.

All that to say, I haven't been able to respond to my previous missive in a proper fashion; but I was linked to an amazing speech by Eben Moglen that everyone should read. Yes, you, Mom!

Freedom in the Cloud, by E. Moglen, 5 Feb 2010.

In it Moglen deals with this idea of center-versus-edge. In the autonomous cloud piece, I wrote that the client-server paradigm was incompatible with autonomy; Moglen makes this point much better than I could. Incidentally the point was Brian Gough's, not mine, though its expression was my own.

    i'm satisfied about those styles of internet journals and posts moreover preserve up them. For everything you've got ignored, you have received something else, and for the whole thing you gain, you lose something else. thanks a lot for sharing with us.
