I didn't realize I hadn't posted this yet. Sorry about that!
(Everyone else's stuff seems so much more interesting than my own :-)
This is just me talking about how I got involved with Brewster and the Internet Bookmobile on its maiden voyage to the Eldred Argument in Washington DC.

This was easily one of the week's most riveting panels.

Okay so I won't hold up the rest of these clips waiting for the tour pages.
I've still got the rest of ETech to do, then I'm going back to my Spectrum Conference and SXSW 2003 footage.
Here's the Howard Rheingold Etech 2003 presentation. The tour page will go up in a day or so.
I've broken down some of these files for easier download over slower connections.

Now my mind is forever changed.
For this reason, it became important to me to preserve this presentation so that the information and wisdom it contains could be spread to a larger audience.
This page is still very much a work-in-progress, as there are still several names, dates and facts that need to be included. Please feel free to email me with any factoids and links that might serve to enrich the page.
Alan explains what his talk is going to be about: "...a little bit of complaining about where we are and what hasn't happened, pay tribute to a few things that were done a long time ago...(and) show you some ideas about how to make things better.." He also says that hopes to get the audience interested in Squeak so that he can enlist them in the project and that he will be previewing some alpha software at the end of his talk that he's really excited about.
(Note that this is a new link I've just put up for this at http://www.lisarein.com/alankay/tour.html -- there were some problems with the other link. Let me know that this is working ok guys!)
Aaron Swartz was nice enough to download one of my files and test it on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.
Here are links to the players that could run the files.
Aaron downloaded http://www.lisarein.com/videos/tvclips/dailyapril2003/4-02-03-shilling-sm.mov and tested it:
Mac: Works in QuickTime.
Win: Should work in QuickTime and VLC
Lin: Works in VLC
So the question of the day seems to be "did I get the incredible Alan Kay presentation that happened Thursday morning at Etech?"
Well yes I did, as a matter of fact :-)
And yes, it WAS absolutely incredible (as you will soon be able to see for yourself)!
I was even able to capture both perspectives (Alice and the Bunny) during the VR demo, and get great close-ups (with direct sound) of all of the historical movies of past interfaces from the 60s!
It's the first presentation I'll be getting up later today!
(After Part Two and the Hi-res versions of Howard Rheingold's Keynote go up.)
I haven't had a chance to post much this week because I've been at Oreilly's Emerging Technology Conference.
So far I've recorded both keynotes (Howard Rheingold and Alan Kay), the bookmobile presentation by Brewster Khale and myself, Ben Hammersley, a DRM panel, a warblogging panel, and I'm about to grab Mitch Kapor talking about his newest software endeavor.
I lost my powercord early on in the conference and that has really cramped my already-impossible production schedule.
However, I did manage to get half of Howard Rheingold's talk ready for viewing and uploaded.
I may get something else up tonight, but otherwise you'll have to wait for the weekend for the goodies!
Here's a short film I've just put together of the Internet Bookmobile's first stop of its first voyage.
This was shot on Monday, September 30, 2002, approximately two weeks before the Eldred Argument on October 11, 2002.
