Software Freedom Day – AV and ISPs

This Saturday is Software Freedom Day, the main Sydney event sponsored by SLUG will be being held at UNSW, more specific details can be found at the Sydney SFD page.

As part of the lead up to linux.conf.au 2007, the AV Team is going to be using this day as a trial run to test out some of the technology we will probably be using at the conference, this currently includes

  • Flumotion for streaming of talks
  • Streaming from a scan converter for slides
  • Recording to DVDs using a consumer DVD recorder for post production and upload to the website
  • Standard recording to DV Tape as a backup ๐Ÿ™‚

Apparently I will also be giving a workshop at 1pm, I say apparently because as usual we get to justblamepia.com. For the unwary, suggesting to Pia that you might be able to give a talk means that you will ๐Ÿ™‚ The talk is currently titled How to build your own ISP – But why you shouldn’t, it will focus on the right way to set one up from scratch from my experiences at ZipWorld and Beagle Internet.
