FSF releases audio recording of LibrePlanet conference
The recordings include a talk given by Samba's Jeremy Allison on Microsoft and its relationship with the free software community, and Gnash developer Rob Savoye announcing the Cygnal project -- a rich media server with features roughly compatible with the Flash Media Server. Two members of the autonomo.us group, Evan Prodromou and FSF director Mako Hill, spoke about efforts to engineer for free network services and the successful launch of the micro-blogging service identi.ca.
"These recordings provide the free software community an opportunity to hear about some of the important work underway, and to get connected with the priorities that the Free Software Foundation is staking out for the coming year" said Peter Brown, FSF executive director.
The recordings, presented in the Ogg Vorbis and Ogg Speex codecs, as well as photographs of the event, courtesy of local photographer Matt Hins can be found at http://www.fsf.org/associate/meetings/2009/
