YAPC Week: Wednesday (Parrot, RT, Mason)

[ #5976 ]
It's encouraging that everyone has good attendance. The audience is well split between the three sessions running now: Parrot (Dan Sugalski and Simon Cozens), RT (Jesse Vincent), POE (Jos Boumans), and Mason (Dave Rolsky).

Great quote from Simon's talk on Parrot: "A computer program is made out of code. It is not made out of email messages.".

The wonderful Ben Hockenhull went shopping and bought microphones and videotapes for me. So now I'm trying to find people to record the sessions. I can't believe that iBooks don't have microphone holes. They have internal microphones, but nothing more. Oy.

I'll be videorecording a bunch of sessions, and Quicktiming them overnight. The trouble is that it can take three to five times as long to encode as to view. Oy. And I don't have anything with a firewire port, so I'm working on borrowed iMacs. (Thanks Jarkko!)

    • Damn my ordinal and cardinal confusion. That's the problem with starting your cardinals at zero. And that's neither a sports nor religious politics joke.

  • Brent Michalski was my co-presenter.

    Credit where it's due and all.
    • Yeah, but that was Brent. Slur mumble belch curse. That may be a presenter, but it's not really a speaker.

      (just getting my own back for the crap he gave me earlier today :-)

  • Like, say, a USB-based mic thingie. (You shoulda asked, Nat, as I just happen to have one...)
    • I hate you, Milkman Dan.

      Sweet, so we'll have more mp3s tomorrow. Hurrah! Robert Spier is recording, and he even went around interviewing people. Now that's dedication.
