New video of tech-talk is up.

This entry was posted by on Friday, 30 November, 2007 at

A new follow-up presentation to our now-famous Poisonous People talk has finally been posted to youtube. Once again, Fitz and I are speaking about open source software, but addressing corporations this time (rather than developers.)

    […] Yeah, well, Fitz and I have been thinking about it for a while. The two of us already have this habit of speaking at conventions and geeky gatherings together; you can watch a couple of our talks up on YouTube. Whenever we speak, we always have tons of questions from the audience and end up chatting with people for an extra hour in the hallway. So, after three different people approached us and said we oughta make a podcast, we finally capitulated. The trick is, we need QUESTIONS posted to the website, so we have something to talk about. […]
