PdF Conference Videos are Up

BY Mike Krempasky | Wednesday, February 16 2005

We've been patiently uploading videos of last week's PdF conference to our channel on blip.tv. Right now, we've added all of the morning's speakers - Lawrence Lessig, Yochai Benkler, Tom Friedman and Eric Schmidt, Seth Godin, danah boyd, Farouk Olu Aregbe, and Lee Rainie -- as well as Dan Manatt of PoliticsTV's wonderful compilation of candidate's online videos, 2008: A Video Odyssey.


If you were at the conference you might have fun waltzing down memory lane. If you weren't there, these videos are a taste of the amazing speakers we were lucky to have, and the diversity of ideas that were represented. We'll keep working at getting more video from the day up there, so tune in regularly.

Also, check out Josh Marshall's videos from the conference. His is a more behind-the-scenes, in-the-hallways look at the day, complete with interviews with Jay Rosen and Yochai Benkler and some peachy music and driving scenes. Those guys are producing some great video.
