Finally, after long last (crunching HD video really turned out to take some time on my Macbook), here is the video of David Weinberger’s keynote from LITA Forum 2009! Enjoy the small version here, or, if you really want to see the HD, grab the large version here (warning: file is just over a gig in size).
Joan Lippincott Video
As promised, here’s the first of the three Keynote videos from LITA Forum 2009. It’s not perfect, as we tried several different strategies throughout filming the various keynotes…try and frame the speaker and the screen wasn’t great, so in later videos we just concentrated on the speaker. In any case, I hope you enjoy! The embed is to a web-friendly version, but we do have the HD version as well…at least until our hosting decides to kill us for the massive filesize (seriously, I plan to move these over to archive.org for permanent storage, but for now, go easy on the HD, please).

LITA Forum 2009 Media explosion
Introducing the Keynote Media Series from LITA Forum 2009! First up we’ll have the audio from the Keynote presentations by Joan Lippincott, David Weinberger, and Liz Lawley, followed up in the next week or so with video of those same keynotes! Some people prefer audio, some video, so we’re gonna give you the best of both worlds. I’ll apologize in advance for the delay on the video…we recorded the keynotes in 1080 HD, and I had forgotten how very, very long that takes to render down to web-watchable sizes. So, watch this space over the next few days for the audio files of the LITA Forum 2009 Keynotes!
