If you have been in Vienna over the last few weeks, you probably have seen it: there was an URL crayoned throughout the city at several places. Noone standing next to it telling you anything about it, just the address. Plain and simple. The address said earthlings.com (or rather, earthlings.de, but it's actually the same).

Curious as I am, I wondered what it's about. And obviously, it wasn't too hard to find out. It's a documentary. But I don't want to say too much about it, I guess I let your own curiosity lead you. All that I want to say is that I consider it worth seeing. And especially worth seeing it through to the end. Definitely got me thinking.

Thanks to the unknown people over here in Vienna who made it possible for me to stumble upon it.

So... How can you watch this video using free software ?

Dear Fred, both the English original as also the one with German subtitles are actually videos on vimeo. And both youtube-dl and clive support downloading videos from that site, to watch with vlc, totem, or whatever you prefer. It's actually the way I watched it myself. :)

It's good man. One of the problematic of this film is one of my biggest concern, that is the animal condition. If you want to dig the ideas behind, a good reference is Peter Singer and his "animal liberation" book, which I didn't directly read, but some people in France translated some pieces of it. It was 10 years ago I read some derived thoughts of all this, then took action a few years later...

My dear Rhonda, so next year at Portland, will you be part of the veg team with us ? ;-)

My dear Cathy, I always was part of the veg team during debconf. But since four weeks I'm vegetarian 24/7. Gosh, I just realized it's already four weeks now. Yeah!
