Linux Conference Australia 2010 streamed live, from NZ

Well, looks like the Kiwis have finally got it right. The Linux Conf Au conference is held in Wellington this year (and yes, I can’t be there) but those clever chaps have arranged live streaming, direct from the various auditoriums.

Just click on the day, and at the top is a link to Live Stream. For example, here’s the link to today’s miniconfs.

My quick look at B’Dale’s talk on LSB appears good. Finally, someone has gotten it right (it just took the Kiwis to do it! Thanks guys.

My only complaint is the support for Silverlight.. Urgh.. why, why, why..

  • Because when you hammer someone down on price, you can’t really dictate the technology they use :)

  • Just get Windows users to use VLC and stream like normal people (it is even mentioned in the Windows section). Silverlight is heavily patented, smothered in Novell-Microsoft deals and a blight on free software. It only advances Microsoft’s attempt to poison a free web and Linux Conf should not be supporting such a beast.

    Imagine the headlines:

    “Premier Linux Conference streams live video with Microsoft’s Silverlight technology.”

    Awesome..
