My Berlin talk: “It’s not a fax machine connect to a waffle iron”

Here's the video of "It's not a fax machine connect to a waffle iron," the talk I gave at the Re:publica conference in Berlin this week: "Lawmakers treat the Internet like it's Telephone 2.0, the Second Coming of Video on Demand, or the World's Number One Porn Distribution Service, but it's really the nervous system of the 21st Century. Unless we stop the trend toward depraved indifference in Internet law, making – and freedom – will die."

    Ironically on my Mac I can't turn the volume up high enough to play this in my classroom from Youtube. Any help is appreciated.
