Take two – remixable Drumbeat slides
February 28, 2010 § 2 Comments
The other day, I posted a draft slide deck designed for people who want to give presentations about Drumbeat. I received a bunch of excellent feedback including:
- Clearly explain Mozilla’s mission and explain why Mozilla is doing Drumbeat.
- List some threats to the open web as a rationale for why we need to do Drumbeat.
- Make it snappier.
Here are is the updated presentation and voice over based on these comments. The content is definitely better as a result of the feedback, but it’s still long (12 mins).
I also did a shorter version with ‘just the basics’ — it drops many of the details at the end describing how Drumbeat will operate. This version runs about 7 mins. You can watch it in open theora video or here:
This shorter version feels a little flat in terms of presentation, but maybe right in terms of snappier and shorter content for a general audience. I’ve put it up for now as the intro video on ‘about’ section of the Drumbeat site, at least until we get something even shorter and better.
As always, comments on how to improve further very much welcomed. I’m especially interested in ideas on how to make the short one even shorter. What could I leave out?
