Agile 2008 Toronto: my recordings

These are my recording from Agile 2008 in Toronto. The videos are nowhere near professional quality. Recorded with a simple webcam. Still I feel that they might be useful and I would propose that more people next year would bring their camera and record some sessions. Maybe a use of the 'crowd' , distribute a few simple recorder and have people film their session by the audience?


James Surowiecki : He has written a well-received book on the theory and practice of "The Wisdom of Crowds".
