Hi Russel,

regarding the copyright, I cannot imagin this being a problem,
in particular if you pull up the live youtube page and view it
from there.  If the quality is not enough for a big screen, you
could consider projecting the slides only which I have made
available as flash and PDF here:


Additional points:

My talk is clearly not complete, and once users are familar with
the basic concepts (on which my talks focuses), there is a lot
of room to add stuff.  For example:

- Demo the construction of complex queries including tags,
  properties, todo keywords.  The demo could construct queries
  simple at the prompt, or in the customize interface.
  In fact, this is an area where a good tutorial still needs to
  be written.

- Demo the search view which lets you query an outline tree like
  a knowledge base.

- Export and publishing, I pretty much skimmed over that completely.

- Demo all kinds of customization stuff, for example setting the
  TODO states, the tag interface (difference between completion
  and the one-key-per-tag interface), STARTUP keywords for initial
  visibility and other stuff.

- Demo logging of TODO-state changes.

- Demo clocking time, maybe together with effort estimates.

If you put a lot of work into it, consider taping yourself
and put the result up on youtube. :-)

Good luck!

- Carsten

Regarding the Google Tech Talk, I've been considering giving a
presentation on org-mode to the local Linux Users Group.

There is no way I can top Carsten's presentation, so instead I'd like
to share the video with the group, and I'll be on hand to answer
questions and perform demonstrations.

I skimmed to the end to see the copyright, it wasn't specific about
public viewing (then again, its on YouTube!). I thought I'd ask if it
would be an issue.

My other thought was that other subscribers may have suggestions for
additional topics that would augment Carsten's incredible work. At
this point the best way I can add value is by answering questions in
person, but I would be open to suggestions.
