We held a conference in San Francisco at the Urban School on February 12, 2011. The conference was streamed on the Web, and video from the conference is embedded here.
We used UStream, a free service, to do this. This was our first time, and the video is not edited. Nevertheless, we hope that you will find these presentations worth watching.
Mac users: the video does not seem to work with Safari -- it does work with Firefox.
