  • Really interesting talk. Unfortunately...

    ...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.

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

    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....

    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.

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