This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This series of segments features me, Christian Einfeldt, giving a keynote presentation to the OpenOffice.org Conference in Berlin in 2004. I really hesitate to put this footage up on the Archive for several reasons. First, arrogance is the kiss of death to a free open source project, and I am reluctant to do anything that makes it look as if this film or this segment is about me, which it's...

This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This particular segment features footage from the beautiful Linspire campus in 2004. Linspire has since moved its headquarters to similarly beautiful grounds, but this buidling is so descriptive of the style, class and polish of the Linspire GNU Linux distros (called Linspire and Freespire) that we wanted to include this footage in our Internet Archive DTP Video Collection. Cameraman Sky...

This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This particular segment features Thomas Burick, Founder of White Box Robotics. At the time of this filming in 2005, White Box had built a robot called the 912 that could give you a virtual presence in your home, or anywhere you wanted. The 912, which looks a lot like R2D2 of Star Wars fame, possesses face recognition capabilities, and responds to commands from an ordinary PC. This robot...

This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. We at the DTP are not Microsoft-haters. And yet it is important to remember that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Right now, in 2008, Microsoft still has too much power over the desktop software market. And this interview with Sterling Ball reminds us about what can happen when one company has too much power. Sterling Ball is the owner of the Ernie Ball company, a...

This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This particular interview features Julian Summers, an Intellectual Property attorney from Southern California. Julian's interview is interesting because he is an early adopter of Free Open Source Software (FOSS), which, in January 2008, is still a rarity in the legal field. But Julian's interview is also interesting because it fits well with the theme of the DTP film: DTP producer Christian...

This particular series of segments features Michael Shaw, a community reporter for Assignment Zero. Assigment Zero is classic example of what tech journalist Dan Gillmor has called "Distributed Journalism" in his ground-breaking book, We the Media . One of the basic ideas of our film is that Free Open Source Software is so big, and so influential, that it will change the way that...
