Jake at Webzine2005

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing my good friend Jake Appelbaum speak at Webzine2005.

I met Jake at Defcon some years ago, and we eventually became close friends. When I moved to the Bay Area, Jake was the only friend I had who lived in the area, and he stepped up to the plate to show me around and acclimate me to the area in a whirlwind tour of San Francisco via automobile.

Recently, Jake has gotten a lot of attention in the weblog community for his journo-blogging and photos from Iraq and New Orleans. The Webzine talk was in many ways a response to the attention (both positive and negative) his projects have gotten, explaining his motivations and reflections. For those who don’t know Jake personally, but have followed his work, it has important insight towards understanding.

Hopefully Webzine will post some video so the talk can be seen with the accompanying images, but in the meantime, you can listen to the audio in MP3 format.
