Nathan Letwory, who is managing the torrent tracker, gave me a link that displays the total amount of data transferred so far - it's quite a lot and I'm counting that this post will increase it much further! If you use BitTorrent, please remember to leave your client open so that it can 'seed' the files for other users - everyone will benefit.
BlenderNation Presentation - BlenderNation Localised
The presentation I did for the Open Community Session on BlenderNation is now also available on Google Video. During this presentation I tell about the background of the site and about how things work behind the screens. Also, and maybe you'll find this more interesting, I'm presenting our plans for our next step: BlenderNation Localised. We want to create subsite for specific language groups, such as spanish.blendernation.com or chinese.blendernation.com. For this we will be looking for subsite editors/managers in the near future.
I'm still busy preparing everything, but I'm hoping to have more news before the end of next month.
As a final note, I borrowed someone's Powerbook cables for my presentation but I forgot to bring them back. I can't for the life of me remember who it was though :-/ Can you please get in touch with me?
