Recording and streaming the Open Source GIS 2012 ConferenceBy: Paul Meems London
From Monday, June 25 until Thursday, 28 June 2012 the international Open Source GIS conference will be held at VanHall-Larenstein University of Applied Sciences, Velp, The Netherlands.
This conference is organized by the MapWindow GIS, DotSpatial, SharpMap and OSGeo.nl communities in partnership with Alumni association VVA-Larenstein.
The purpose of the 4-day conference is to highlight significant aspects of Open Source GIS. The conference will appeal to developers, end-users, students and educators.
We have 36 presentations of 20 minutes and we would like to record these presentations so others can watch them even if they can't be present at the conference.
We will also live stream the videos for people that have pledge this project. During the live stream you can interact with the conference using mail and Twitter.
A professional recording company is willing to record the 4 days for a small fee.
If this project continues the videos will be freely available on YouTube within a week after the conference.

We didn't reached our goal. Thanks again for backing us.
This project wasn't only about funding but also about interests.
To record and live stream the conference was not just expensive but also very time consuming and it seems the interests for this are too little.
H2Video will however record the first day (Monday 25 June). Those recordings will be available on Tuesday/Wednesday. Keep track of our website to get the link to the recordings.
You can also send me your e-mail address and I'll send you an e-mail. Mine is info[AT]mapwindow[D0T]nl
Next year we will try again and use a different approach. Hopefully it will work

Thanks all for backing our project. We only have 1 day left and still need 63% of our target.
It seems we will not make it. Can you please ask your contacts again if they are interested in seeing the recordings of our Open Source GIS Conference?
