An excellent Lawrence Lessig speech on On Free, and the Differences between Culture and Code (video). I think many find it quite difficult to understand the true power behind these ideas.

I was able to seem him in person at the ASEE annual conference in Portland, which was great. See photos from my subsequent vacation in the Pacific Northwest.
