Last year’s OVC was fantastic. Great speakers and a great audience. This is the place for new business models, open content and huge amounts of talented creatives, programmers, editors and producers.

I’m honored to speak at a conference together with people like “the explainer” Michael Wesch, OK Go’s Damian Kulash and loads of other smart people!

My presentation from the Open Video Conference

I recently visited New York to attend the Open Video Conference. I was invited to take part of a panel discussing Public Media, Open Content, and Sustainability. But I also did a presentation during a session of lightning talks.

I had 7 minutes giving an example from one of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation’s experiments using YouTube and added some general thoughts on why we need to be the best provider of our content.

If you have attended any of my presentations during the last year or so this is known material. With only 7 minutes available I decided to put together some proven and tested stories. The story of Heinrich Stammler and a quick use of my now pretty well known image of a certain park in Oslo.

Martha Speiss recorded the presentation. You find it embedded below.

The Open Video Conference was an excellent event with lots of interesting sessions and huge amounts of brilliant people. They’re in the process of making everything available at the OVC web site.

Speaking in Bergen and New York

This week I will be speaking at the Nordic Media Festival in Bergen (Norwegian). I will mention some of my key experiences from the One Year in 40 seconds-video. Talk about the media industry and new services on the internet. And try to draw a picture of the most important trends.

Bergen, Norway - in May

In June I will be at the Open Video Conference (english). Talking about some of the work we have done at the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. BitTorrent, Creative Commons etc.

I hope to see some of you there! But most of all:

For both presentations I am interested in thoughts and feedback. Any important trends or services I need to mention?
