Oscon Videos

by gregg on Jul 29, 2008

Last week at O'Reilly's Open Source Convention (OSCON) I decided to put together a video attempting to capture the essence of the event (I did something similar with Railsconf in 36 minutes earlier this year).

I ended up with is 37 minute video of great speakers including the keynoters Tim O'Reilly, Damien Conway, Tim Bray, Robert Lefkowitz, David Recordon, Nathan Torkington, and Danese Cooper.

Here is everyone shown in the video. You should really watch the whole thing, but if you want to skip to a certain person just click their name:

Thanks to everyone who gave me their 30 seconds. Sorry if I filmed you but you didn't make it into this video, I had to cut it down to the vids that were short and clear.

If you're wondering how this was produced:

  • $150 Flip Video.
  • Edited with iMovie 2008.
  • Exported from iMovie in mp4 (since that's the format the videos are from the flip).
  • The audio levels were all over the place, so I edited the finished audio track in Pro Tools.
  • Threw together a song in garage band.
  • Recombined the audio track with the video using Quicktime.
  • Uploaded to viddler.
  • Did my homework, and found all the links for the talks.
