I visited this year's easterhegg in Munich. The easterhegg is an event by the chaos computer club.
I held a talk expressing some thoughts I had in mind for quite a long time about free licenses. The conclusion is mainly that I think it very often may make more sense to use public domain "licensing" instead of free licenses with restrictions. The slides can be downloaded here (video recording here in high quality / 1024x576 and here in lower quality / 640x360). Talk was in german, but the slides are english. I plan to write down a longer text about the subject, but I don't know when I'll find time for that.
I also had a 5 minute lightning-talk about RSA-PSS and RSA-OAEP, slides are here (german). I will probably write my diploma thesis about PSS, so you may read more about that here in the future.
From the other talks, I want to mention one because I think it's a very interesting project about an important topic: The mySmartGrid project is working on an opensource based solution for local smart grids. It's a research project by Fraunhofer ITWM Kaiserslautern and it sounds very promising. Smart grids will almost definitely come within the next years and if people stick to the solutions provided by big energy companies, this will most likely be a big thread to privacy and will most probably prefer old centralized electricity generation.
Nice and comprehensive arguments towards public domain. I'm mostly using OS software in a commercial environment and it takes some effort to make sure to choose correctly licensed software, public domain would ease that. Especially since we are given our stuff back anyway.
