Fiscal Sustainability Teach-In and Counter-Conference

April 28th, 2010 by selise

  • Q: Why do we need Fiscal Sustainability Teach-Ins and Counter-Conferences?
  • A: Time to Sweep the Vampire Squid Off Our Faces and Make Room for the Real Change.
  • ________________

    Please note: The following and the individual session pages were all updated on 10/25/10 to include video and transcripts to the previously available audio and slideshows. Special Thanks to: the presenters, Howie Klein and all those who contributed financial support, the anonymous individual who at the last moment took charge of all on-site audio and video (without which there would have been neither) and the anonymous transcription team. — selise

      @Mary McCurnin: hi mary! i’m so glad you told me that you are having problems with the audio. any number of times is ok, and much better than not saying anything — i bet if you are having trouble, then you’re not the only one. but even if you are the only one, i want to make it so you can hear it.

      will you help me debug? your help would be most appreciated because i can hear them on my imac without speakers, so i don’t know what to do.

      the first session is particularly low volume, but you can turn the volume up in the little player. did you try that?
