Free as in Freedom and Free as in Free Beer: a talk and walking tour with jokes

A presentation of the various definitions of “Free,” from human liberation, the law, freedom of movement, to economics.

This lecture pulls together the ideas of The Diggers, punk rock, Franklin Roosevelt, and the Free Software movement to spark some new ideas and conversation. The show starts with a brief multi-media whirlwind though these ideas and ends with a short walking tour into the streets to see how these ideas apply in the real world.

Originally presented in relation to the New Museums exhibition, Free, on November 6, 2010.
