Zittrain speaks on The Future of the Internet

The ever-ebullient Jonathan Zittrain spoke at an EFF-sponsored event at the CNET offices last night, entertaining the packed room with elucidating anecdotes about North Korean radios, Cap’n Crunch whistles, and more, and even included an inspiring take on the humble robots.txt file.

My favorite line, in reference to a particularly onerous Facebook app: “the number of times I’ve been bitten by a vampire is equal to more than the number of times I would have wanted to have been bitten by a vampire.”
