Macworld 2011 Presentation Videos: Uploading!

by Brian on February 9, 2011

Weren't able to make Macworld this year? Came to the show, but weren't able to check out that one presentations you were totally into? The hour of your rejoicing is at hand! We're uploading the videos to our Vimeo page as we speak. Several of the videos are up now; the rest should be up in the next day or so. (Once we upload them, Vimeo's data-crunchers have to "process" them. We don't know exactly what that entails, but we assume the result is something smooth and creamy. In our experience, smooth and creamy is good.) We know folks are really looking forward to these, so we figured we'd give folks a heads-up now, rather than wait.

We want to give a special shout-out to Merlin Mann and David Sparks, who were both kind enough to prepare and give presentations, despite, you know, not actually working here. Service above and beyond the call of duty, gentlemen; thanks very much!

Touching on something from the last blog post: this is the first time we've done screencasts "live" like this, and it turns out that the Macworld show floor is a pretty challenging place to capture audio. Our video camera was completely overwhelmed, so we ended up recording the audio separately, then synching it up and filtering as much of the background noise out as possible. Needless to say, we learned a lot that'll help for next years' videos. 

In any case, enjoy the videos and we'll see everyone next year!
