LibrePlanet 2019 videos now live!

by Zoe Kooyman Contributions Published on May 13, 2019 04:33 PM

At the LibrePlanet 2019 conference, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) recorded 40 speaker sessions -- over 24 hours of video, and they are now online on our GNU MediaGoblin instance.

The FSF team put their heads together and selected a few of our favorites from the entire 2019 Libreplanet program for you to start with -- brought to you in a Digital Restrictions Management (DRM)-free, downloadable, free format.

  • In their talk, entitled "Sharing global opportunities for new developers in the Wikipedia community," Srishti Sethi gave us some valuable insights into how you can get involved in the Wikipedia community.

  • Amanda Sopkin's talk, "The secret battle of encryption algorithms," delved into the history of encryption, with lots of fun factoids about how encryption methods were invented, used and foiled.

  • Martha Esperilla and Stefanía Acevedo joined us from Hackerspace Rancho Electrónico, sharing their work in building community around their work, including CoAA TV, an online audiovisual archive.

  • In "GPL enforcement and customer benefits: Evidence from OpenWRT," Do Yoon Kim explained to us how his research shows that free software wireless routers are valued higher and sell better.

  • Mary Kate Fain asked us "What free software can learn from successful social movements," and answered this question by sharing experiences as a grassroots organizer and as a free software activist.

  • Free Software Award winners OpenStreetMap and Deb Nicholson both shared their work talking about "OpenStreetMap" mapping developments, and the free software community challenges we face in "Free software/utopia," respectively.

These are just a few of the interesting and varied subjects discussed at the LibrePlanet 2019 conference. Please have a look at the entire collection of 2019 videos and photos for hours of viewing pleasure. And if you really can't get enough, you can scroll down to the archives, where you can revisit the 2018 videos and photos, and much more.

All the LibrePlanet 2019 videos were created using free software, with high resolution USB Web cameras and USB audio mixing desks, whose drivers are supported by Trisquel. We want to thank everyone who participated in LibrePlanet 2019, plus our sponsor, Red Hat, and you too, for your continued support of free software, the FSF, and LibrePlanet.

We look forward to welcoming you again in 2020!
