Video of my "Internet and Empires" Talk at Google

Greetings. In late January, I was invited to Google's Los Angeles
(Santa Monica) facilities to give an informal talk (titled "Internet
and Empires") on a range of Internet-related topics. Since I touched
on a number of familiar issues, I thought that the presentation might
be of some interest here.

The topics naturally included a number of the controversial issues
related to Google, but also more generally privacy, free speech, ISPs,
data retention, government and legal issues, censorship, network
neutrality, and more.

Video and audio-only versions of the approximately one-hour talk are
available (in a variety of formats) via:

Comments and questions are naturally welcome. Thanks very much.
