On the last day of linux.conf.au 2011, Mark Pesce gave the final keynote entitled “Smoke Signals”. The slides and an essay based on the presentation are available on Mark's website.
After the keynote both the conference organising team and members of the Linux Australia council received complaints from attendees regarding some of the content and imagery in the presentation. The imagery in particular was of a nature that was upsetting to a number of viewers.
