Damn, just the way FOSDEM shares their videos makes me want to attend.


@trashHeap, I kinda don’t get how they are organized there. How did you grab your files? Even better, is there a spreadsheet somewhere? :slight_smile:

Also, way to go @cwebber for keeping a consistent ID across the webbers, er, web. :sunglasses:


their organized by room / room number. Check the schedule for figuring out which talks are located where.

Individual talk pages also should have links to the individual talk files.


Im going to half to attend Fosdem or LibrePlanet one of these days.

Their were a lot of booths this year at Fosdem I would have liked to have seen in action; whose teams seemingly had no corresponding talks. Much to my frustration.


Lets meet up at one! But if FOSDEM, give me notice, I need a passport.

A Generic Guide to *Nix Systems

It won’t be any time soon but when I do go to one or the other ill give you long forewarning. Between my sisters wedding and my own coming up I probably wont have much other travelling money to earmark for a bit; and that might be a stretch to get my employer to send me right now.

Who do we attribute? FOSDEM? The speakers? Is this obvious to non-maiki?


Here’s my list of interest:

I started copying and pasting from the window, but I see that aside from a few very niche talks and administrivia, I’m kinda interested in all of them.

I might do another silly thing and make a bunch of quests daily todo to watch a video, until I get through them, or tired! :slight_smile:


Fosdem I don’t believe is in anyway considered the IP owner of the talks; their just distributing. In most cases id say the speakers and or the organization they represent.


I created #scitech as part of a two-year old discussion, but also because I’d like a place to drop discussions that are easy to find. It is also to make #links a little less techy, to encourage others to share more. I’d love for folks to share more things that delight them, found objects, that sorta thing. But we lean techy, so that can discourage.

Anyhow, I’m gonna start topics to discuss the FOSDEM videos as I watch 'em. I imagine they will go in #scitech or #webcraft. Maybe #text-mode? We’ll see! Tag them all #fosdem!
