  • Hello,

    Thanks for your kind words. This presentation was filmed, so that could perhaps be even better than any slide commentary. I will link to it in the description as soon as the conference arrangers publish it.

    About the copyright question: of course it should have been freely licensed. I even thought that I did put it under a free license, but something must've gone wrong during the process. Anyway, I've changed it now. Thanks for alerting me.

    Best wishes,

    Lennart

  • Lennart, good job done. Thanks for making it available to the community. I especially liked your use of 'free' images only. May we have a short slide by slide commentary, or text explaining the slides, please? This will make the presentation more useful. Another point, is this presentation under a free license. I assumed it would be but could not find mention of which kind of copyright/free license it is published under.
