Other than my background interests in being a musician
and generally being creative, I've developed a bit of a thing for creating picture/music/video mash-up's of Conferences and Events that I attend either in person or as was the case here (and two of the below)
, virtually. I have no idea how this came about other than learning a thing or three (1) from the likes of Tony Hirst from the Open University.
Previous examples include mash-up's of ScienceOnline2009
, and most recently, ScienceOnline2010:London
Anyway, a few days ago, I downloaded about 80 photos from the pool
on this website and other than the opening and closing shots, pretty much put them into a random order and using OpenOffice (Open Source)
, created a slideshow.
Using another Open Source tool, Audacity
, I mashed up two MP3 files to create the audio track.
Having uploaded the slideshow to Slideshare
, I then simply added the audio track to create a Slidecast
And here is the end result:-
