Hi folks!

Ok, the original movies are available here as torrents:


For information on what is on them, see my blog:


...but ok, here you have a summary:

The super*-movies are the movies from the Smalltalk Superpowers 
workshop. This is about 3 hours total split up in 5 pieces.

seaside.avi is the tape from the Seaside BOF. It is mainly a demo of 
Webvelocity from Cincom (Seaside based) followed by explanations and 
discussion from Cincom and Gemstone people regarding what they are doing 
in the Seaside area.

dave.avi is the first tape from the Squeak BOF. It's Dave Ungar 
presenting work on a Squeak VM adapted to run on the Tile64 64-core 
processor from tilera.com. It is VERY interesting. :) I didn't catch 
all, had to switch tapes - but most of it I think.

jecel.avi is the second tape from the Squeak BOF. Jecel talks about CPU 
history in general and Smalltalk CPU history more specifically. He also 
presents some of his own work and some about the latest projects. I 
found it very interesting.

My own smaller presentation of Blackfoot was not taped but I will post 
something about it on my blog soon. :)

regards, Göran

PS. If you for some reason have issues with the torrents, mail me and I 
can give you a URL for a direct link. I just don't want to sink my 
server - but perhaps everyone already knows the direct URLs... :)
