PyCon recordings seem to suffer from link-rot...
Last update on .
Searching for links to some of my presentations from PyCon (particularly the audio/video). Lots of links to no-longer-existing pages at PyCon.org. There's an unofficial mirror that at least covers back to 2009, but most of the older stuff seems to have black-holed.

Yeah, I wrote to the PyCon guys about this in August and they indicated that they plan on bringing the old sites back up at some point.

We are currently working on ramping up the 2012 site, and
migrating to a new hosting provider. We will be bringing back the 2009
and 2010 sites in a few months. Thanks for the patience and

The AV-team from Pycon 2009-2011 has all recordings archived on http://blip.tv/pycon-us-videos-2009-2010-2011

Again, I *can* find the 2009+ years, it's the stuff from 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, etc. that is missing. I know there *were* audio recordings of my descriptors talk, for instance, and I believe there were recordings of my talks on ctypes, and maybe even the one on metaclasses from *way* back... but they have disappeared.
The blip.tv site really needs a way to filter the *current* channel, btw; very hard to find a given talk in the 400 episodes...

I'm disappointed that it's no longer possible to download videos for offline viewing from _any_ era, as of a few months ago.
I suppose it's more the result of a blip.tv business decision than a Pycon AV-team decision. But it's too bad there aren't any alternative mirrors other than blip.
