Semiprozine Debate Videos

On account of the issue having come back up to the surface thanks to the latest issue of Locus, I spent about six hours last night extracting out the footage of the debate at last year's WSFS Business Meeting over the Best Semiprozine Hugo Award. Because the discussion was long, I had to split it into two parts.

The first half is the technical debate that concerned itself mainly with trying to define the precise effect of the proposal and how to accomplish it, and probably is mainly of interest to people interested in meeting mechanics.

The second half is the substantive debate on the merits of the proposal. Both segments are 13-14 minutes long, but if you're interested in the meat of the matter, you can pick up with the second half and you will not have missed much.

Once Google Video stops accepting uploads, I'll have to start breaking these things down into even smaller pieces, because YouTube has a ten minute limit.

The reason I haven't done the entire Business Meeting is because that's around six or seven hours or so of raw footage, and it took me six hours to produce less than 30 of usable output here, so you can see how long it would take me to cut up the entire meeting. If it were just a matter of posting the unedited video in one monster piece, that wouldn't be so much work. Also, I'm only just getting my bearings with the video-editing software. Perhaps by Montreal I'll be better at this.
