Hello Guys!

Today in our LATAM meeting we talk about this topic and I believe that if
several projects are pointing to share though video is because *is the
right way to take*... now, even if like Abdel say, are different projects,
I think we can join our forces and defeat the text side...

Now. Lets see those points we have in common and things we could do

* All projects want to make people stop reading and start interacting with
new resources (videos)
* We can use a unique plattform to upload either videos or videoconferences
recordings (which are important)
* Share knowledge

I have tried BBB and is really awesome, however, I'm not sure if Infra team
will push this is we don't make it work before. What are my recommendations:

we can start with G-Hangout or any service already online. Mostly,
because we need to see if people is interested not only in the idea, but
also on be part of this. How can we do this?

I will be having a couple of meetings through Hangout (some for videos and
other related stuff) and we can go through there, set a weekly time/date
and start meetings there with random topics. Is a way to push people to see
each other before set up an infra that we don't know if people will use
-since begining-.

To make this project work, just like videos is happening, we need to see
commitment... that's stage one :)

Constantin, I would love if you can join us at #Fedora-Design at 1530UTC
(in about... 4:30h) and share some ideas with the Videos team.

See ya all!

>> Hi, That is really interesting.

>> There is an other project that has started, "video tutorials".
>> Please read the wiki page[1].
>> We should probably have only one platform for those needs.
>> I am  not sure that the infra will provide us a physical machine for

>> archives.org or other free online services?
>> Do BBB is able to record a talk in a temp folder, stream it, and then
>> send it to an hosted storage? (That should not be too difficult).
