I’ve seen everybody hail Lightworks as the messiah that will make all other open source video editors irrelevant. So far, I didn’t blog about this (because frankly, life’s too short to be pessimistic, and I was also quite curious as to how it would play out and wanted to give EditShare the benefit of the doubt—after all, I’m a fan of video editing software in general).

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for months. You may remember me being a fan of SFLphone. Well, turns out that for the past year, I’ve been using only Empathy to do my VoIP calls.

Thanks to our friends from Ubicast, there is a nice recording of the talk I gave with Thibault in San Diego. Unlike what the title says, this is actually not a case study :) it is aimed at those of you who are wondering what GES is all about, why it matters, how it works, and why everybody should be using it to Get Things Done.

No no no, I said video, Not videos. Seems like even though I spent hours editing and rendering a single recording, I’ve still beat the GUADEC organizers when it comes to “time to publish” ;)
