A Little More Footage —

In case some of you are wondering, I am in fact adding new BBS Documentary raw footage to It just takes a little time because I have to go over the recorded hour, make sure there’s nothing too actionable or problematic in the footage (for the interviewee’s protection, and mine), and then generate the MPEG file (which clocks in around 2 gigabytes) and upload it to, which then has to go through the footage and “derive” a bunch of versions of it.

So it just takes a while. I really can’t be doing a whole lot else while going over the footage, because I’ll end up missing something. So it’s not always easy to set aside the time.

Anyway, here’s a few more hours of footage. Some are called “Open Source Movies” instead of “BBS Documentary Interviews”, which is a little kink in the system, which will be fixed.

The last one is especially cool; it’s a rare introduction-to-TBBS tape created by the developers to show how to get the most out of the TBBS system. I used a portion of it for the beginning of the Make It Pay episode of the BBS Documentary. This is just the sort of stuff I’m delighted to save and get out there.
