Really interesting talk. Unfortunately... by Ole Friis

...the show stops abruptly after 32:46 of video. I guess I have to learn the rest of Scala by doing some manual reading, then :-)

Anyway, Scala really looks intriguing.

Re: Really interesting talk. Unfortunately... by Ole Friis

Ah, now it works, and as the InfoQ guys said, I probably had a connection hickup. Excellent!

Very interesting talk by Michael G

First time I have got the feeling that my functional programming courses at university were good invested time. :-)

Re: Very interesting talk by Michael G

Well, should add English courses.

podcast by phil swenson

You guys should 1) have an audio only version 2) set up a podcast for them.

Very few people want to sit and watch a 44 min interview. But I wouldn't mind downloading it and listening while I work out or drive....

Re: podcast by Baruch Sadogursky

+1 for that.

Re: podcast by Ilya Boyandin

+1 for podcasts

Re: podcast by Oliver Hernàndez Valls

+1 for video downloading on a free format

Dissapointed with media delivery format/support by jonathan wolter

I'm on OS X behind broadband and the playback stops at about the 3 minute mark. Sure would like to download it in a format that is independent of this flash player.

Or, why not syndicate the content on google video (with mp4 download support), etc simultaneously. I bet it would do more good for your brand recognition than cost you in pageviews.

Re: podcast by 蔡 kkppccdd

I found out that audio presentations have provided download links, but video presentations have not.
