And now for pictures, care of Walter:

I know there were others taking pictures as well.  If you want to, send 
them directly to me via email and I'll add them to the website.

Later,
Brad

You're a much better photographer than I am! And yes, the space needle 
shot is pretty good.

Then please let me offer my praise as well.  The entire event was very 
well organized and ran quite smoothly.  I enjoyed listening to the talks 
and meeting everyone, and look forward to a repeat next year.

Later has arrived.  The first 4 videos (3 presentations) are up on the
website:

 http://d.puremagic.com/conference2007/speakers.html

 Walter and Andrei's talk (86 + 112 minutes):
   http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6262259850172814399&hl=en
   http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5552232015568336937&hl=en

 Don's talk (41 minutes):
   http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1440222849043528221&hl=en

 Ben's talk (19 minutes):
   http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1048204291439246024&hl=en

Why those?  Somewhat random placement of the video's on the dvd's.  The
rest, with the exception of Cristian's) will come tomorrow.  Christian's
needs some editing before it can go public.

Each of the talks has a description and a friendlier title already
submitted, but after a few hours the updates haven't propagated out from
the manager tool to the actual public website.  Presumably that'll
happen soonish.

Later,
Brad

Excellent Brad, thank you very much!
In the future, I recommend vimeo service though, higher quality and doesn't 
have problems with audio-sync like google video sometimes has - as in the 
first video I'm watching right now (Walter and Andrei), there is audio-sync 
issue.

Yeah, I've seen a few videos hosted at vimeo and I agree that the
quality is much better. Although, for even better quality you can't
beat BitTorrent :)
