I just visited Ejovi’s blog and found these videos from a 2005 PBS interview discussing his book Hacker Cracker. I don’t pretend to know Ejovi that well, but I did get to know him a little bit during the time he worked with us at FON and during a short stay in Madrid.
These two (of four) videos are particularly interesting as he discusses the American experience of growing up in Brooklyn (somewhat reminiscent of my family’s Bronx Tale), the very entrepreneurial nature of those who are bred in depressed American neigbhorhoods, and the importance of information technology. He even alludes to gentrification, a topic dear to my Bro’s heart. The final two videos are available as well on his blog. Check them out!
