Eben Moglen gives this keynote at the Feb 25, 2011 Morningside Post Conference on Digital Media, the theme of which was "Navigating the Age of Democratized Media".

Eben talks about the FreedomBox, a project to return control of digital communications to individuals
and take it away from the corporations that spy on people as a way of
life and the governments that use control over communications to stifle
political organization and dissent.

This project serves as a particular example of his larger theme that the digital networking of each person to each other person through the internet will level the media landscape of the 21st century and make ignorance obsolete, something we could make a technical reality today if not for the "rules against sharing."
