These recordings are for CTAN members who were at the conference and didn’t have a chance to take notes.

The audio quality is good, recorded on a H4N Zoom stereo recorder.  However, the audio may start a few minutes before the lecture starts, so you may here the chit chat in the room.

 

On the whole, I learned a good deal from this Summit. Mainly that I’m a terrible employee in my company and that I should be fired, so I can go create other start-ups.  Not quite what I was expecting from this conference.  The other big take away, was how many do Angel Investing because it is fun!  Which I can believe and look forward to.

Roundtable – Valuation of Startups and Early Stage companies  – audio was mediocre because Mr Paine refused to use a microphone.  Overall, kinda boring and not living up to the presentation title.
