Canonical along with a few other sponsors has produced a series of 13
episodes of "Go-Open" a TV series. These series are available as MPEG4
videos under a creative commons (Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike
2.5) license. The videos are very nicely done...humorous and
informative. Most of them feature Mark Shuttleworth himself and a bunch
of the other "who's who" like Stallman, Raymond, Perens, Marti, Lessig,

I grabbed all these videos and watched them (on Dapper Drake on my
laptop) on a long trip to the Caribbean and back. I liked them so much
that I made a copy for the guys in Jamaica, where I was attending a
conference :-)

The videos are available at:
1) Torrent links -
http://www.go-opensource.org/files/go-open-vol-1.torrent and

2) HTTP/FTP - http://www.archive.org/details/go_open_season_1
