“Mentally contaminated: Doctorow and Jones” is now a feature on Red Hat Magazine. Watching the video which is produced with some smart interlacing of Creative Commons material from the Prelinger archives is almost as much fun as being there making the tape. Thanks, Bascha.

More Cory Doctorow in Chapel Hill here (video 2007) and here (video 2004). Cory at Duke here (video via iTunes 2007) and here (Random Signal audio 2007).

Jones and Eben Moglen here (Red Hat Magazine video 2007).
