I’ve made a recording of the Open Data keynote I delivered at the Accessibility 2.0 conference last month. You can download the MP3 directly from the Internet Archive. Or you can subscribe to the articles RSS feed as a podcast.
The talk (text, audio, whatever) is licenced under a Creative Commons attribution licence. Feel free to spread it ‘round, cut it up or mix it in with other stuff. One of the attendees at the Accessibility 2.0 conference floated the idea of creating slides retrospectively to go with the talk; he’s a keen photographer. If you’d like to translate the talk into other languages, go for it. It would be really great if you know ASL, BSL or some other sign language and you fancy recording a video to match the audio track.
If you’d like some more context for the talk, there are a few MP3s from the Long Now Foundation that are thematically linked:
- Alex Wright — Glut: Mastering Information Though the Ages
- Jimmy Wales — Vision: Wikipedia and the Future of Free Culture
- Clay Shirky — Making Digital Durable: What Time Does to Categories
I’ve been thinking about maybe putting together a podcast — just an RSS feed — that points to interesting inspirational talks, sort of like Jon’s Found Sounds podcasts but for spoken word instead of music.
