FISL10 – Day 2


This is these conference day of the talk and we got Aaron Newcomb on the talk about using video to communicate about Open source software. The first day was more about the expo, this one is more about the conference, not that the first day had no conferences, but I wasn’t very aware of them until the very end.The talk on Aaron talks about video blog, and general video on the web, with free software of course. Talking about cinerella and other video tools.The issue of flamewars and other issues that make things simpler and less analog. Open network system live with John Fowler Aaron talk about Lumiera which is a new project about video editing. So seems that we could use more and better apps into Linux. OpenMovieEditors another app also useful to do video editing.After the apps we looked into the codecs and transcoding tools about the different formats including Theora, H264 and other video transcoding tools.Aaron went on to do a demo of the video editing tools with cinelerra and how he do some of his editing. He took some recording of the conference and then he replaced it with some external audit track.The final part of the talk was more about the web services to manage videos.

FISL 10 – Day 1


BrOffice team
The first day started with me on the air on my way to Sao Paolo, departing from Mexico city at midnight I arrived to Sao Paolo at 11am, just in time to get on the flight into Porto Alegre.When I arrived to the city I was lucky to find it easy to arrive into the conference even before arriving to the hotel. The conference was great, I was able to chat with Knut from Qt and was a great small chat. I also got into the OOo boot which help me managing my lougage and suite.I got to chat with many people but not as much as before since they mostly speak portuguese. I have manage pretty good to know my way around people, however still feel like they dont understand what I say when I speak.I went to one conference where I met back with one government official from Sao Paolo, Marconi, who recognized me instantly and I was pretty surprised. Since I got on the afternoon, I couldnt attend to most of the talks, however they were enough. My only problem is that I havent found many governments or companies from out of state which would be my main target.At night I had some issues finding my hotel but eventually got to it and enjoy a good rest, which I was so tired I couldnt go to the Bar.
