i asked blake to check the sound, he said they seem to work fine on his end, also, here, on both mac and pc, they 'all' play sound fine... can you name a couple of the titles that are giving you problems, and i'll look into it...

--

so, by removing the ad page, does that mean i don't get any credit at all for recording the event?  isn't there a way to modify that page to conform to your non-profit mission... keeping in mind the original agreement we came up with was that i would help you guys 'give it away' by posting and uploading to some of the most popular video sites, but i would 'also' be able to distribute, sell, market the material on my own, after the event, and in the future... 

i do understand that owasp would prefer that i not sell, or have 'anyone' otherwise profit from the content, and i thought we came to an understanding on this a couple months ago, the response i had, was that 'without' the profit motive (even at a reduced price, of let's say $9.95 a disk), in the long run, you would be 'severely' limiting the 'distribution and dissemination' of the material, ie: they won't show up on amazon, they won't be purchasable at your local barnes & noble, itunes won't carry them in their store; resellers, etailers, retailers, electronic distributors, media partners, advertisers, mobile carriers, video aggregators, none of them will touch it, without some kind of profit 'food chain'... the skies the limit in new media right now, there's more to life than google video...

also keep in mind that the 'spirit of' the creative commons agreement we selected ( http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ ) absolutely allows 'anyone' to "alter, transform, or build upon the content," and to distribute it (even for a profit), as long as the license remains intact and 'attributed'... so, even under the cc/by/sa we used, i should be legit... i thought i made this perfectly clear, in both our discussions, and in the agreement we had (which i will resend shortly under a separate cover)...

so, should i create two sets of masters? a 'santized' owasp version, and a media archives version? or can we modify that page?

i'll stop the uploads, leave today, home in 3 days, and then they should start showing up again by next monday.. but i leave for a show on the 16th (thurs), back home the next monday, when i can continue the process... I would guess they'd be about 1/2 way posted by the 16th, complete by the 23th... 

if we did them without the titles, they could probably all be posted and re-tagged by the 16th...

> As of now we have just the keynote on owasp.org that does not have the AD and daily emails asking for content from members, some of the others on the test media archives site do not have sound....

> What is the ETA on removing the commercial AD page and re-delivery of the final product on masters and google video?
