Dear Cameron,

Yeah, as you note, sadly blip.tv changed their business model and even 
though FOSSLC was paying for hosting, they simply stopped offering the 
service altogether, and the videos went off-line. This was actually 
years ago and very few people noticed.

I went back to a backup archive to restore some particularly noteworthy 
& timeless videos that people requested and upload them to YouTube. I 
don't want to promise to do others as candidly the same effort applied 
elsewhere is much more benefit.

Peter's group has been in touch with me regarding FOSS4G videos I have 
recorded as well as other conferences I have recorded such as BSDCan, 
PGCon, EclipseCon, and others. It looks very likely that moving forward, 
at least for the ones I'm involved with in some way, they'll be both in 
YouTube & the TIB archive which is great.

Kind regards,
