"Free as in Free Beer", or "The Foundations of Civilization"

This talk starts by describing the fundamental importance of beer not only to software developers, but also in the development of civilization. It continues by describing the technology of beer brewing and how computers can help produce better beers. In particular, Groggy describes the fermentation temperature program that was discussed in Slashdot last year.
