    I have the same problem - Chrome on Linux - but I noticed that eventually the presentation manages to start, after 10-15 minutes later :) I have no idea why is it happening. InfoQ - anyone knows?...

    Try to download the slides via the slides link. In my case, the request gets blocked by the firewall. Here is the message I see:

    Its seems that is blacked flagged. This could explain Dzmitry's problem.
