SourceBoston 2008 Videos
As you may have heard by now SourceBoston is releasing the video of all the speaker talks free to the public. We have opted for the Creative Commons BY-SA-NC license which means you are free to do whatever you like with the video with the exception of commercial uses. We are busily encoding the videos right now for optimized web distribution and they will be available in full DVD quality formats via Blip.TV. If you don’t have a spiffy way to read video RSS feeds we’ve even teamed up with Miro (a free and open source Internet TV client) to provide you a cobranded player which is automatically tuned to receive all the videos just as fast as this author’s jankity PowerBook G4 can churn them out. If you would like them faster please consider donating a spiffy new laptop
We will initially release the videos that everyone is clamoring for (the keynotes, the l0pht panel, and the Tor talk) followed by a release every week. Let’s go over that one more time. Every week for the next 36 weeks we here at SourceBoston will release a new talk for you. You are free to do just about anything you like with these videos. Copy them, post them to Youtube, post them to TPB, whatevs. Your only constraints are as follows:
- Attribute the video to us (SourceBoston)(a link back would be appropriate)
- Retain the exact same license (CC BY-SA-NC)
- Don’t profit off this work without asking us first
As for number three we do not consider deriving ad revenue from posting the clip to your blog profiting. So feel free to do that too. In fact the whole idea is that we encourage you to post the videos and talk about it. These are some amazing speakers and should be shared. For those who require the instant gratification of web video we’ve even setup a channel for you here:
Here are the links to our cobranded players. This will automatically download the high quality DVD rips in Divx format.
