"Jaron Lanier talks about his latest book, Who Owns the Future? on the Colbert Report (US TV, Comedy Central channel). Should be viewable on the web shortly at http://www.colbertnation.com/

I met Jaron when he worked for Atari in the early 1980s. I remember him as a brilliant and delightful guy, but perhaps a little (or a lot) too full of himself? He does seem to have been successful as a tech pundit..."

    This appears to be the link to the video:

    http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-vi deos/433502/march-04-2014/jaron-lanier [colbertnation.com]

    However it doesn't appear to be accessible outside of the USA.

    Yep, I'm use to it, but what an incredible piss off. I can still find the video on Comedy Network (Canadian Comedy Central), but when someone provides a link to something on Comedy Central (Twitter, Facebook, various blogs, hell even CBC's done it) I just get the, "Content is not available in your region, try Comedy Network", but then I have to go dig through the Comedy Network archives to find the specific clip.

    Normally I give up if it's not something recent.
