I asked for the nicest presentation space at DEFCON, I got a nice rented tux, and I steeled myself up to give my all onstage. And it paid off! May I proudly present my DEFCON 19 talk: Archive Team: A Distributed Preservation of Service Attack.

I’m really happy with how this came out. Issues with anything I have to say will come from content, not form. I’m sure I’ll get the usual “woah, profanity” complaints, but fuck those guys. The core messages, I think, come off really well: the importance and relevance of user-generated content, the mission of Archive Team in this time of great data destruction, and how at the end of the day, computer data is a human story, worthwhile of preservation. It may be the most energetic preaching of data preservation in modern times. I hope it spreads far and wide.
