Yes, it was a great speech. The conference was held in year 2000.  
Here's the originally published text:

Interested can also read the related article "The Problem With Music"  
by Steve Albini:

Personally I more or less quit "doing the corporate rock thing" as a  
major label singed artist in 1997, to focus on making music for  
pleasure. I wrote some books in Swedish on the matter and when the  
above two articles came around I was more than delighted. They kind  
of justified my critical view and also helped me getting more gigs as  
a speaker, seminar panel moderator etc, thus providing food on my  
table ;-)
