On April 9th & 10th, Calgary Open Source Software advocates held a 2 day festival to discuss the challenges facing open source software, and promote its adoption.
Interested in OSS, I volunteered to create video archives of the event. Downloadable and Creative Commons licensed recyclable copies of the video coverage can be found on Internet Archive. (Anyone without full Flash support in their browser might need to access the lectures that way.)
But for YouTube hosted copies, I decided to experiment with YouTube Annotation Hyperlinks. They allow you to link from within one YouTube video to another. This allows me to show a brief summary of every event, and let the viewer click through if they would like to learn more.
For anyone denied YouTube Annotation Hyperlinks (currently not supported by iPhone or iPad), here’s an index of lectures. Clicking will open the appropriate YouTube video’s landing page, where you can either watch it, or find embed HTML if you’re looking to propagate your own lecture.
