Thanks for the great video and thanks to Cory for saying some good stuff.

People bring movies from home? I think I've got one... maybe.

Haha, guess that renders my crap-res back-of-the-room cellphone vid pointless, although I too captured the whole Q&A session... good work, Victor / Danwei!

Thanks for this Victor, Jeremy...
Does anyone have good pics of this event that The Bookworm can make use of? They'd be much appreciated as we didn't take any on the night. Contacts are on our site.
Cheers!

Aww man, I can't believe I missed Cory Doctorow.

One of my favorite moments was when Cory realized that reading his story excerpt while in "tablet mode" was just not going to cut it and promptly switched back to "laptop mode". I was sitting in the front row on a tiny stool, you can hear me coughing and clearing my throat continuously for the first 25 minutes of the talk..
Thanks to Cory for putting these important issues out there with clarity, insight and humor.
