Open Education Conference Vancouver August 12, 2009
While the Open Education movement focuses on institutional issues, a large ocean exists of powerful individual accomplishments simply from tapping into content that is open for sharing and re-use. As colorful as old covers of “True Stories” magazine, this presentation shares moving, personal stories that would not have been previously possible, enabled by open licensed materials and personal networks. Beyond my own tales, others have been culled from the net, and you can share your own.

The Amazing Presentation
The CoolIris presentation once ran the show (it no longer works, it's Flash DOA)
CoolIris was a nifty presentation method that allowed me to create a "wall" of media that could be navigated in linear and non linear fashion, and it was all generated by a MediaRSS feed. An item could be be an image but also a video. I wish there was an HTML5 version today!
