I must say that the SLUG Videofest on Sat­urday went very well. The imme­di­ate aim is to organ­ise a video recording/​editing/​encoding/​hosting/​streaming team for Soft­ware Free­dom Day (SFD) on Septem­ber 16. I’ll need to squeeze every bit of per­form­ance I can out of my Pen­ti­um III 700MHz laptop to per­form the requis­ite edit­ing and encod­ing. Encod­ing in single-digit frames per second has nev­er been more fun!

The real goal of this ven­ture, how­ever, is to pre­pare for linux​.conf​.au (LCA). We are see­ing SFD as a dry run for this premi­er annu­al event, so it is import­ant that we are organ­ised for this one. I am not con­cerned: Silvia has been doing a fine job lead­ing us so far.

Speak­ing of SFD, con­grat­u­la­tions Pia!
