Cory Doctorow, co-editor of Boing Boing and fellow of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, took the final keynote slot at the first day of the conference.
He held forth on the misuse of digital rights management technology by companies such as Sony, claiming that such technology was fundamentally "unscientific".
"Open source is science, and before science we had alchemy. The difference between alchemy and science is that science publishes its findings. DRM is not grounded in science because it is founded on keeping things secret," Doctorow said.
