Jon talks about how he first worked with Bassel and how the software Bassel wrote for Openclipart (openclipart.org/) built a framework that not only accelerated the site's growth, but is resilient enough to still be running today, despite it's creator being in prison and unable to make any updates. Background images in this video are from growing collection of clip art created for Bassel to raise awareness of his case: openclipart.org/collection/collection-detail/rejon/7468

Note for avoiding confusion: Jon begins this conversation with a story that refers to "Open Clip Art Library," the name for the project at the time of the story. The correct name for the project now is Openclipart.
