FOSDEM videos released

In a nice coincedence with the release of Lenny (cheers!!1), the [1 low-quality versions] of the videos from the [2 Debian DevRoom] at FOSDEM 2009 are available now!

* Better quality versions will be encoded and uploaded by Ben over the next
days. I’d also like to collect the slides from the talks there, so if you
had a talk there, please send them to Wouter and/or me, and Wouter, please
send me the slides you collected on the presetation computer ;-)

* Basically I’m very happy with our results, excpet for two things: sadly
the computer running dvswitch wasn’t powerful enough to do picture in
picture (and due to time constraints we we’rent able to switch to a more
powerful one), so we’ll have to plan this better next year. And second, I
have no real clue how useful our streaming efforts are, I believe the
recordings are useful, but in both cases feedback from people who find
them useful is appreciated! Covering FOSDEM is certainly a lot of fun, but
it’s also a lot of work and leaves not much room for seeing other parts of
the conference. So a short reply (I’ll post this to d-d-a with reply-to
set to -project) will be very much appreciated! :)

* Big thanks go to Womble2, edrz, xerrako, Q_, danielsan, DaCa, tokkee,
luca, Yoe, Ganneff, franklin, huhn, luk, CarlFK, daven and some more
volunteers I cannot remember right now! Also not to be forgotten the
fosdem crew & volunteers for an awesome event and the people from CCC
Hamburg who came by car and took a lot of audio/video/computer equipment
for us (and left 90min later than planned! Thanks again!)! And also Debian
(via the DPL) for some 120 Euros to rent equiqment and for buying
batteries and the always needed duct-tape!
