What is pyvideo.org

pyvideo.org is an index of Python-related conference and user-group videos on the Internet. Saw a session you liked and want to share it? It's likely you can find it, watch it, and share it with pyvideo.org.

I posted the videos for SciPy US 2012 earlier today. They're missing summaries and Carl is forwarding me a bunch of data correction requests. I'll work through that over the next few days.

SciPy 2012 had ok metadata. I spent about 3 hours on SciPy 2012 over the last few weeks.

Next in the hopper are PyCon AU 2012, DjangoCon US 2012 and PyCon DE 2011. You can see the queue of conferences here.

Thinking about a tip jar

pyvideo.org takes a lot of time. Plus the software it runs on is pretty cool and could/should be used for other domains. This is less of a hobby and more of a part-time job.

I've been (slowly) working on collaboration features in richard that make it easier to delegate the work to other people. Even with that, I'll be spending a lot of time on this.

One thing I was thinking about doing was adding a tip jar sort of thing to pyvideo.org. My questions to you are:

  1. is that offensive?
  2. is this site valuable enough to you that you would tip me?
  3. what systems are good for this sort of thing? PayPal? gittip?
