My Keynote At Mesh: Growing Communities And Adding True Scarcities

from the have-fun-with-it dept

A bunch of folks have been asking for video from my keynote talk at the excellent Mesh Conference, and here it is (and if you really want to download it, there's an iTunes link as well). It's also embedded below if you click through. The whole thing is an hour, but split into four separate videos. The first two are my presentation and the second two are the Q&A that followed:

It was, as always, lots of fun to do. Also, I met tons of great, wonderful, interesting and fascinating people at the event. Interacting with people is always the best part of these things. Thanks to everyone who came out -- and a special thanks to the Mesh Crew: Mathew, Rob, Michael, Stuart and Mark who have created something really special with the Mesh event and who are each amazing individuals as well.

Also, since people were quizzing me about it later: I actually do "memorize" the presentations and what's coming next. I don't see what the next slide is before I bring it up and no (as two separate people asked me...) I did not have a little device in my ear telling me what was coming next....

    Re: Use Open Formats?

    Hi, I'm from mDialog the video platform that makes the embedded player Mike's talk is being delivered by.

    Your point is valid, quicktime and for that matter flash are both not open video frameworks, though they do play open video formats such as the one we are using at mDialog: mepg-4 h.264

    Our current player is built around javascript/ajax/Quicktime, which to some degree is more open than most video players. But our plan to help solve this is to use HTML5 in the next version of our player.This should let the browser select how it wants to playback video as HTML5 has a "tag" for video, simplifying things a lot.

    Always looking for feedback, do you think our approach will help on Linux?

    BTW the mesh iPhone app also has all the videos too, it's in the app store and it's free.
