So it's taken about a week, but I finally got the video and rolled it all together into a lovely video. OHBot tried to help...but he had other ideas. I got my way in the end.

So, in the presentation I talk about what I've done over the last several months, all of my projects (including OHBot, URU BabelBot, and the KI Directory), and where I see the future of those projects going. I also announce the release of a new website called the URU Localization Project which is VERY exciting! Oh, and I also talk about the evils of hacking. And by evils I mean benefits.

So, watch the presentation - it's only about 30 minutes followed by a short Q&A that I've also included. In total, it's just under 44 minutes. Then, leave your comments and questions here in this thread! I'm really interested to hear what ya'll think about the future of the KI Directory that I outlined. What do you think about that idea?

For the video and links to all my projects (including the new URU Localization Project), click here -> http://uru.orangehairedboy.com

I hope you enjoy it!

Note: The audio level of me speaking is a bit low - you'll need to crank the volume to 11.

Congrats OHB! I viewed PDF version of your presentation, I'm currently listening to your speech, and it's amazing what you're doing.

Pity you didn't mention accessibility aspects of BabelBot, namely text-to-speech feature and appearance customization (at least in PDF)

But anyway, great job and keep up the good work. I'll help where I can.

another sleepless night for me... so i had your presentation video running behind the uru application; you and ohbot have my continued support, and i'm liking the things you have suggested... sounds rather ambitious though, their implementation might be long in the making? regardless, i still appreciate you and your fellows having the ambition (or should that be audacity :P ) to support the uru community in such a profound way!!

... the way i see it your tinkering is in uru's best interest; keep up the good work!! :D

Thanks for posting this, OHB!

Very informative and rather comforting for some of us who are not really fond of change...like me.

Excellent presentation, OHB. I enjoyed listening to it very much. Thanks for including the pdf version of the slides; it was nice to be able to use them to see some of the smaller text (and OHBot's comments).

Your projects renew my hope for the future of Uru.

Oh, and thanks for including my name (I think - Tai'lar?) on the page of thanks. I'm proud to be acknowledged as one of your supporters.

I did enjoy the presentation, though! :)

You were technically mentioned in this post. I'm sure OHB could put your name under the video or something. It's easy enough :P

Yes, I would appreciate that. The original, unedited video, along with two others, will be up on my own website at well on Monday! Watch here for the announcement: http://kefrith.meinwald.info/blog

Dearest OHB, did I already tell you that you're awesome?... No?... :P

Then, please, accept my belated appreciation, my congratulations and
many many Kudos to all that you've done so far and will be doing and
providing us with in the future...
I've always been particularly impressed by how sensitively and smart
you've handled all those delicate situations you've been running into
with all your projects by now...

The presentation is wonderful, well-structured, informative and well
comprehensible except the API, but I understood this as something
like an interface for apps for accessing data or information in Uru and
outside or anything like that lol...

I'm wishing you further on so much fun and success in the realization
and implementation of your ideas and visions in Uru as well as in your RL...
Thank you, OHB and your team, of course, for the vid, the pdf file and all... :D

Even now, I'm still a bit steamed I missed this in person due to work, but in this economy, you just can't say "no" to your boss no matter HOW badly you want to get away. Thanks Kefrith for recording it. Fantastic presentation, OHB!

*sees his name in the "With Thanks To..." section*

Heh, thank YOU! Your work has added and will add much to the game and to the URU community in general, in my opinion, and I applaud you for all of it. ;)

Hey, that question is simple to answer!! There's just one person in the whole community that meets all those requirements...it's ME!!!!! XD (and maybe Allan White too)

Anyway XD great job with your presentation and in general with all your projects. They're all great!!!

Thanks for putting me in the "Thanks", I feel honoured.
btw...just after my name...I think that should have been a "Lunanne" not a "Luanne" probably XD
