This talk provides a humorous description of an argument in favor of free and open source software based on what I call "antifeatures:" functionality that technology developers charge users to not include. From DRM to crippled OSes to digital cameras, I will show off many of the most egregious antifeatures and describe how open source both makes them impossible and helps users work around them.

Geeks have a special relationship with The Truth. Nothing is more important than correcting a falsehood, no matter how small, and nothing is more odious than not telling The Truth. Unfortunately the meaning is often mangled and the end result is the opposite, a lie. This leads to misunderstanding, mangled interfaces and the myth of the stupid user. Read more.

We see our site as more than just a source of news and information: it’s a platform on which news and information become building blocks. Read more.
