thanks for this presentation but the person who has shooted this presentation does not have any knowledge on how to shoot. instead of concentrating on the screen (presentation screen), he is fixing the camera on the presenter , which is not helpful at all, it made me really nervous that the presenter for example was talking about a graph in his presentation that I could not see at all since the one who is shooting is concentrating on the presenter..

Rolling around on the floor. . .

Meta data, it too complex for me. How do I create a complete 3d map of the world, how do I recognise every object in the world and make every one of them universial accessable? I'm really stuck!

How do I make this data university available to everyone?

Nice shirt, well surfing is much more fun than lecturing!
