    Thanks for writing the transcript. I loved this comment:

    Do not use “rape” as an analogy for something that has been done to your fstat file. One of these things can be fixed with a text editor.

    Three cheers Matthew Garrett!

    Ditto Kieran’s praise. Comapring pretty much anything to rape is a HUGE pet peeve of mine.

    That’s a rather unfortunate still presented when the video loads up and before one presses play! The partially naked man with the artificial phallus is not Matthew Garrett, he appears to be an MC (presumably of the lightning talks session Garrett is speaking in). A “how not to be a dick” talk might come across differently if presented in that costume.

    “you may know me from such [unintelligible]” is “you may know me from such previous events as LugRadio Live [laughter]”
