The talk was broadly similar to the slides I found here: http://www.stanford.edu/~vcs/AAAS2011/1102_aaas_reproducibil...
If Fernando is able to convince academics to foster the same sort of culture that the open-source community has, his influence would be very great indeed.
I've been wondering: could we run acadaemia without the stamp-of-approval that is publishing in a peer reviewed journal? I.e. like releasing open source software, when you've got something you're ready to share, you just publish it yourself, without having to get anyone's permission. Of course, there are other problems that would have to be overcome with that, but it could make things a lot more efficient. There are some moves in that direction - look up 'arXiv overlay journals' if you're interested.
As I tried to say at the meeting, this really goes to the whole team. I may have started IPython, but it's the combined talent, energy and dedication of a big team that makes it what it is today. This award is a recognition of all that work, I'm just here to pick it up :)
