Convention Panels

The following panel recording were done by me, using an iPhone 4 as I sat in the audience. The sound quality usually isn't great but if you use headphones or earbuds and turn up the volume then you usually can hear most of what is being said. Some of these panels included a visual presentation but the recordings are just audio files.
