After the unconference of Kinnernet09, today we had a very interesting conference day at Com.vention the Internet and Media conference organised by TheMarker. One of the highlights was the session with Brad Templeton of Electronic Frontier Foundation and Joi Ito of Creative Commons. Two people who put their time and effort in helping to change the digital landscape.
