Nice find. Given the film's subject, it's funny that I can't even view a detail page about the 'Like whatever' plugin on a non-sanctioned browser.

This is great, thanks. I feel like so much of the tech chat I see now is drenched in HN-types desperate to flip their MVP, and I'd almost forgotten what it was like in those early days when everyone was busy dreaming more of future. These guys still have that spirit, in spades.

Neat, and the subjects of the doc are doing great stuff, but no, "Freedom" is not why the internet exists.

Thanks for this. Getting connected to this kind of obscure stuff is part of why I love MetaFilter. How else would I get my daily dose of new wave Japanese Post Modern internet culture....Ace.

Anyone want to write me a plug in that will click the favorite [+] on every comment on a thread of Mefi?

Here's the site of the organization that ran the market. They don't have any events pending at the moment, but I know I'll catch the next one.
