  • Why not play quicktime movies in a real quicktime player?

    I swear by Codeweavers [] Crossover Plugin. It's a Wine [] based system for running windows plugins on linux. And it's cheap.

  • What kind of feedback/response were you expecting?

    I caught "Presentatin Judo" at YAPC::A::N and liked it. I haven't had a chance to download "Mailing List Judo".
  • I watched the "Conference Presentation Judo" synchronised with the slides.

    He didn't do all the stuff that was in the notes and there was no bonus material; it was a little bit slow and I didn't get the jokes; I would have liked to see more XML; I didn't get any cake at breaktime and would it kill him to wear a tie. But other than that it was great. :-)

    I look forward to seeing the real thing someday.
    • It kills most people to wear a tie. What's with the obsession with the 18th century couture?


      • The criticisms were just a tongue-in-cheek rehash of the things that dominus [] says that people complain about in presentation evaluations.

        And yes ties can kill. Especially when worn near rotating machinery.

        Scarves as well. Ask poor Isadora Duncan []
  • Thanks, Nat (Score:3, Insightful)

    Sorry for not acknowledging. I watched the Mailing List Judo movie while also digging for the original thinly-veiled thread.

    Yes, please, continue to post 'em.



  • Enjoyed these. Keep them coming. Quicktime is peachy, everyone else can get bent. :)
  • Unfortunately human nature doesn't always let us shout loudly about the good things. So I'm not surprised you haven't had a lot of feedback.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the movies, especially as I was clicking through the slides from the web too. It would be nice to see this happening alot more, and hopefully it will. Seeing as MIT are putting all their materials online, perhaps The Perl Foundation can follow their lead and get speakers to allow them to have all the conference slides and a video on

  • I liked hearing Dominus as well. Though most of the material is in the extended notes attached to the presentation, it's still fun to hear him.

    And I emphasize "hear", because I really couldn't see very much. Mostly just a shadow that would occasionally gesture in front of the screen. Would it be any easier to have audio only, say Ogg or MP3? I have no experience with this, so I don't know if it would be more or less effort.

    But yes, I did appreciate it, and would like to see more. Please keep up the g

    • Actually, I have been saving them as mp3. If you look in [], you'll find mp3s of Dominus' talks. The movie pages have links to the mp3s, and vice-versa.


    • I agree that the video doesn't add that much, but it's better than nothing. MJD hasn't got the Mailing List Judo slides up on his site (yet?).

      Thanks, Nat!

        Not now, not ever. The Mailing List talk is evil, and should be suppressed. I had mixed feelings about having the audio be available, and decided to leave it where it was mostly because it was too late by then anyway.
