Ton Roosendaal will be receiving an honorary doctorate at the Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK later today for his work on Blender. A streaming video of the entire ceremony (direct link for Windows Media Player here) will start at 11am UK time (GMT+1) and is expected to last for two hours. As it will cover multiple persons, we can’t predict when Ton will be on.
More details and photographs will follow later today.
Update: Ton was the first graduant to speak. His part is over now.
