Making of GNOME 1,2,3 talk

After our GNOME 1,2,3 talk some people asked Xan and me about how we made the presentation. So here are the technical details:

Some people also asked me about the song we used to test audio and video in the room. It was Amelie-les-crayons singing Elizabeth: (click on the image to watch the video)

Doesn't the conference provide a way to get all presentation slides? Any good conference should do that, if not only as a part of organization, but also maintaining its legacy, it's long-term worth. Especially open source software conferences. It might be intresting information. It might teach me something. It might even be something I contribute to.

I see you keep being the perfect mix of a smart hacker and presenter :) Hope you're having a nice time at Gran Canaria!

Yes! The device should show up as an input device. Hey, maybe there's a bug in my code or something.

In all cases, your mplayer bug could have been fixed by either: using "totem --fullscreen", or running "mplayer -ao pulse" instead of killing pulseaudio. I guess MPlayer's ALSA plugin is as much a pile of hacks as the rest of the code.
