> I for one am very glad that he made available his slides and the accompanying text of the talk. That way I was able to pass my own judgement rather than having to rely on the comments here.
I expect that a person that (i) _sincerely_ regrets using a bunch of images on a talk because (ii) it agrees that they were offensive (to some group), _not_ to place said images online. Since this person would be aware of the offense it causes (point ii), and regret offending people with people it (i).
At least that is what I would do. IMO placing them online does discredit his apologies.
> As far as I can tell the talk discriminated noone and did not attack, make fun of or objectivate any group.
It is always too easy to tell other groups when they should not be offended. I agree with rgmoore (http://lwn.net/Articles/425786/) that you need to look at the composition of the offended group.
> Or a picture that shows nothing (yes, sex exists! Deal with it...).
There are endless topics that (i) exist, (ii) polarize, and (iii) are completely off topic (sex, religion, sports clubs etc). When people go to a software conference, they expect to deal with _software_ issues.
