As John was saying, we're having great conversations with our customers and new friends at EduComm 09. Not just about lecture capture, but about the general educational technology issues they face each day.
Here at EduComm 09, we're having all sorts of cool conversations with current customers and those that might become customers. It's a great atmosphere.
It's interesting how the questions are much more refined. People are very specific about what they are seeking and what they need out of a lecture capture solution.
The next installment in our Mediasite Tip series, what's the difference between "Everyone" and "Anonymous" in terms of viewer permissions and security roles? And what are the pros and cons of each for different Mediasite applications?

These events are always meaningful for us because, in addition to making new friends, it gives us a chance to reconnect with our customers and see what's new in the world of information and education technology.
I was reminded recently of a huge challenge continuing to brew in the background as we busy ourselves with the economic crisis - the retiring workforce.
Check out the lead in to this article, The Dark Side of the Retirement Bubble by Stephen Xavier over at Chief Learning Officer. (Unless noted, the other quotes are from the same article.)
Streaming Media West (November 17-19, San Jose McEnery Convention Center, CA) is looking for speakers. Use this form if you are interested (form says due date is May 31 but we just got an email citing June 15). All speakers receive a full, complimentary registration to the conference. About 2500 people attended Streaming Media West last year, including Sonic Foundry.
During our Mediasite User Conference last month (UNLEASH 2009) I happened upon a conversation Dharmesh and John were having about folders and permissions. Dharmesh was at the Mediasite Guru post and one of our customers had been having trouble with the "add like" function and permissions.
I thought the info that Dharmesh went on to share was excellent - something I didn't know - and so the three of us decided to repeat the conversation with me behind the camera, Dharmesh as our special guest and John playing Oprah.
