If you missed Terry Chay's OSCON talk this year, you're in luck - he has made the talk temporarily available from his web site. Because Brain Bulb has plenty of bandwidth and disk space, I offered to host the video there, so that it has a permanent home:
The video is great - it's really almost as good as seeing the talk live, because you get to see Terry speaking as well as his slides (the slides are shown every time there is a transition or some of Terry's famous Keynote magic happening). I guess it helps that Caitlin happens to be an expert at this video stuff. :-)
