LibrePlanet 2020 videos now available online
Looking for entertaining and educational advocacy materials to point people to while explaining the importance of free software for a free society? The recordings and slides from LibrePlanet 2020: Free the Future sessions are now available online! What's more, we've taken the time since the conference to smooth over some glitches or small gaps you may have experienced while watching the conference live.
You can now watch Saturday's opening keynote featuring Free Software Foundation (FSF) campaigns manager Greg Farough in conversation with three young hackers: Alyssa Rosenzweig, Taowa, and Erin Moon. You can also view the Sunday keynotes by Public Lab founder and fellow with the Shuttleworth Foundation Shannon Dosemagen, and Internet Archive founder and Internet Hall of Famer Brewster Kahle. We hope these recordings can provide inspiration and knowledge that will be useful both now and in the years ahead.
Video of thirty more sessions from the successful first online edition of LibrePlanet can be found in the conference's video library. And of course, the story doesn't end there. The LibrePlanet archives have hours of additional talks, keynote sessions, and presentations from past years of the conference. You can spend hours there diving deep into the wide range of free software activists, experts, and entrepreneurs who have shared their knowledge with the LibrePlanet audience over time, and endlessly expand your free software knowledge.
The LibrePlanet 2020 program page has links to all recorded talks and their accompanying slides. For more information about the sessions and how they were streamed and recorded with free software, visit our page on the LibrePlanet wiki, or read our detailed blog post "How to livestream a conference in just under a week".
We're still working on the audio streams for the talks, which, by popular demand, for the first time, will be uploaded in conjunction with an RSS feed you can use to discover talks or catch the ones you missed in your favorite podcasting app or general purpose RSS reader.
We publish our recordings on the MediaGoblin platform so you can watch them without proprietary software, which means we do not have access to the built-in promotion available on the more popular nonfree platforms. So if you want to make a small contribution to a world where we don't have to use proprietary software to watch videos online, please share the LibrePlanet recordings today.
Finally, we want to give another heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers and speakers who worked hard to have all the sessions run smoothly. You are LibrePlanet's future!
Note: We're always looking for volunteers to help transcribe the videos. If you are looking to contribute, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
