Kle­pas poin­ted us on IRC to a bril­liantly-done film explain­ing the concept of Trust­worthy Com­put­ing. It con­cisely and clearly demon­strates why so many of us in the FLOSS world prefer to call it Treach­er­ous Com­put­ing.

Unfor­tu­nately, the pro­du­cers decided to make the film avail­able as a Soren­son-encoded Quick­time file. I find it amus­ing that people who oppose digit­al restric­tions are using such a highly-pro­pri­et­ary video format. For­tu­nately for us, there is a DivX/​MP3 ver­sion (still not as good as The­ora or even XviD, but it’ll do) avail­able at Google Video.

Once you have fin­ished view­ing it, head on over to Against-TCPA for more information.
