First batch of videos from LibrePlanet 2013 published!

Dear Pascal,
The first round of videos from LibrePlanet 2013 is now available for streaming and downloading. LibrePlanet is an annual conference sponsored and organized by the Free Software Foundation, with LibrePlanet 2013 being the best one yet. All current associate members of the FSF enjoy the perk of being able to attend LibrePlanet without paying an entry fee. This year we set out to make sure LibrePlanet featured fully functioning live video streaming using only free software, and it was a great success. The videos are now available for viewing in VP8/Vorbis, both free media formats, and are hosted on an instance of GNU MediaGoblin, the social media sharing platform which many of you helped support.
If you missed LibrePlanet this year or didn't have time to attend all the talks, there are lots of great sessions worth watching. In total, seven talks are included in this batch of videos. They include:
These videos are just from the first set of talks. In the coming weeks, we will be posting more of the dozens of hours of footage from talks, panels, and workshops at media.libreplanet.org. Continuing in our theme of freedom and community production, these videos are all freely licensed for easy sharing and remixing. Check back soon for more.
We have already started planning LibrePlanet 2014. To make sure you hear the details as soon as they are available, subscribe to the mailing list.
Sincerely,
William Theaker
